 Senator George Akume

Senator George Akume has said that President Buhari is one of the few Nigerians who does not like money.

He stated this on Wednesday at the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential campaign in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

According to Vanguard, Akume who was a former governor of Benue, said: “He (Buhari) had opportunity to make money as Head of State, minister of petroleum and military administrators of north eastern states but did not amass wealth.

“Buhari has managed the economy very well and we are very proud of him. The landmark projects of the government are impacting positively on the lives of the people.

“Mr. President, you promised to provide infrastructure and we are seeing it, you are not a man of talk but action- talk and do.”

Senator Akume assured the President that the people of Bunue have cordial relationship with the Fulanies and will sustain the relationship if the candidate of the APC in Benue Emmanuel Jime is voted as governor in the March 2nd election.

He boasted that President Buhari will record 70 percent of the votes in the coming elections, adding that Benue people were solidly in support for free, fair and credible election.

Akume called the attention of the President to what he called ‘the problem is the militarization of the state, accusing the state governor of livestock guards to intimidate the opposition.
