Samuel Ortom, the governor of Benue State, asserts that he is not scared of the EFCC and is ready to give himself in for any inquiries. He reiterated that since he hasn't contaminated his hands or has anything to hide, he is accessible for investigation.

According to PUNCH NEWS, At the State Executive Council and other high-ranking government appointees' goodbye ceremony held at the former dining room of Government House in Makurdi on Friday, the governor made the news.

Declaring that he had nothing to hide, he also told his appointees to be ready to respond to questions from the anti-graft agency. Accept invites from the EFCC without hesitation. I won't flee if the EFCC comes looking for me because I'm not afraid. I don't have any investments abroad, especially in Europe.

I have nothing to fear and nothing to conceal, so if somebody thinks I've committed a crime, they should come and tell me directly. Because he had promised not to dissolve his cabinet, the Governor asked his Commissioners to stay in their seats until the day of the handover. Everyone will formally resign from their positions by noon on May 29, when the new administration takes office, he said. So everyone should stay put until then, according to report.
