Lagos Type Of Godfatherism Can’t Work In Benue State– Ortom by Johnnyessence(m): 6:37am On Oct 10
Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, on Tuesday, told Senator George Akume that the type of godfatherism being practised in Lagos State would not work in Benue.

Ortom said Akume was attacking him not because he had not performed but because he refused to submit to the control of Akume, who was Benue State Governor between 1999 and 2007.

He also accused Akume of diverting N2bn from the state coffers while serving as governor to prosecute his Senate ambition in 2007.

Ortom, who spoke through his Special Adviser on Media and ICT, Tahav Agerzua, was reacting to a statement credited to Akume, in which he reportedly described Ortom’s performance in office as abysmal.

Akume had in an interview with journalists at his residence in Makurdi alleged that Benue had realised over N500bn under Ortom, but there was nothing to show for it.

The former governor regretted that Ortom could not pay workers’ salaries despite the income.

Akume, who said he regretted bringing Ortom to power in 2015, apologised to Benue people for his error of judgment.

But reacting, Ortom’s aide said, “Akume’s criticism of Governor Samuel Ortom has nothing to do with performance but everything to do with Ortom’s refusal to be subservient and be subjugated to his (Akume’s) whims.

“It has become a trend for Nigerian godfathers to suffocate their godchildren for failing to be totally slavish to them.

“This is unfortunate of godfathers who see themselves as gods as it happened in Lagos State.

“Unfortunately for Akume , he failed to achieve the same selfish dreams for Ortom in like manner .”

Ortom ’s aide said Benue people ought to turn against Akume , having failed to acknowledge the privileges they gave him.

Wrong. The killings stopped after he succumbed to decamping to PDP. No sitting government would ever jeopardize its position, rather the opposition would do just about anything to ensure the government is in jeopardy.

Well its a shame that Lagos who prides itself as centre of excellence and whom other states should look up to has subjected itself the throes of one of the most shameful , barbaric and anachronic instance of of primitive Godfatherism to rear it's head in the 21st century ..Lagos can do alot better

Ortom is not clueless. He is just a wicked man pretending to be God fearing.
He has killed more people than herdsmen through the hardship he has caused by non payment of salaries.
The last killings of some priests and worshippers was done by an aid to whom he has been paying 20 million naira monthly.
The guy spent more than Atiku to buy pdp ticket.

Whatever they got going on in Benue State isn't working, that I'm sure.

It's funny how the "Godfatherism" in Lagos has made it the economic capital of west Africa while the states condemning it are made up of Villages and towns.
