Governor Ortom of Benue State Denies Importing Snakes and Frogs into Nigeria

Responding to the allegation through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Terver Akase, who said;

“The report published on social media by some opposition elements had once more brought to the fore the sponsored publications to attack the person of the Governor in order to distract him from continued delivery of good governance to the people of the state.”

Mr. Terver, further said;

“The report on the intercepted consignments in Calabar which was skewed and published on facebook by opposition members in Benue State is proof that most of these young men who call themselves opposition on social media are bereft of any idea to help develop their state.

“The cacophony of ridiculous lies they posted claiming that Governor Ortom is the owner of the intercepted consignments is not only false; it is also shameful.”

“The governor has led a revolution in agriculture with numerous initiatives to make the state live the true meaning of its status as the food basket of the nation since he assumed the leadership of Benue State but snake farming is not part of the agriculture programme of the state.”

Mr. Terver concluded by saying that;

“Even in the his private capacity, Governor Ortom does not own a snake farm and will never encourage anyone to go into the business.”
