Following the massive defection of governors and lawmakers to the All Progressive Congress (APC), the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has alleged that the PDP governors are defecting to APC to avoid prosecution from the Federal Government after mismanaging public trust and resources.
Governor Ortom who made this assertion on Thursday said that some governors who have mismanaged themselves and public property are afraid because the Federal Government is using that to prosecute them.
Speaking further, Ortom also revealed that he was approached and he told them he had no skeleton in his cupboard.
He said, ”I have no issue with those defecting here and there but let those people come clean because you heard the former National Chairman of APC say that when you defect to APC, you will become a saint; even if you are a devil, you will become a saint.
“And so people who have mismanaged themselves and mismanaged public property are afraid. And that’s the instrument that the Federal Government is using on our people.”
”They came to me and I said no, I have no skeleton. Let them bring it out. If you don’t do well, I will take you to court and we will dig it out there.”
