Samuel Ortom, the immediate past Governor of Benue State, has expressed his openness to the inauguration of two judicial commissions by his successor, Governor Hyacinth Alia, to investigate the activities of his administration from 2015 to 2023.

The former governor stated that he is prepared to cooperate fully with the probe panels, emphasizing the importance of conducting the investigation within the confines of the law. Ortom underscored that his administration was founded on principles of transparency, accountability, and good governance.

Terver Akase, Media Aide to the former Governor, conveyed Ortom’s readiness to provide any necessary information or clarification during the investigation.

“Chief Ortom urges his former appointees to equally make themselves available whenever called upon to provide clarifications,” Akase stated.
