The Benue State Governor, Hyacinth Alia, has said no amount of propaganda and fact-twisting from the opposition can stop his government from the ongoing asset recovery of the state.
He said nothing can stop him from the ongoing exercise because he has entered a covenant to governor right with the people of Benue State.
Naija News recalls that the Assets Recovery Committee set up by the state government on Tuesday ransacked a private automobile park owed by the former state governor, Samuel Ortom, and recovered 20 cars suspected to belong to the state.
The incumbent governor of the state, Alia, however, said his administration would do everything possible to recover the state’s ”stolen’ assets.’
The governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Tersoo Kulabon, Thursday said stolen assets are being recovered by the Assets Recovery Committee.
Alia noted that no amount of propaganda would stop the ongoing recovery of Benue property allegedly stolen by officials of the immediate past administration because the people of the state are behind him.
The governor’s aide in the statement claimed that Alia entered into a covenant with the Benue people to deliver good governance and was committed to doing so.
Alia said, “No amount of propaganda by the People’s Democratic Party would stop the committee from doing its job.
“My administration will use every lawful means to recover all assets belonging to the State.
“What Ortom and his media men must know is that government is focused and determined to use every lawful means in recovering stolen assets.
“Benue people are solidly behind the government and its mission to recover the assets.
“The Assets Recovery Committee is on course, and no amount of media facts-twisting and lie-peddling will stop it from carrying out its mandate.”
