The Benue State government led by Governor Samuel Ortom has discovered what it said are questionable deals at the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB, in Makurdi.

Governor Ortom made the disclosure in Makurdi on Sunday after he received an interim report of the investigative panel to the State Universal Basic Education Board, SUBEB.

Ortom who declared that his government was ready to step up the fight against COVID-19, was taken aback at the level of alleged fraud and lack of accountability at the board.

He said, “That is why i had to set up this committee and insisted that their findings must be made public.

Reacting further, Ortom said; “Benue SUBEB is an agency where workers irrespective of cadre live flamboyantly. They call the place ATM. It is most unfortunate and for me as a person I have learnt my lessons. All those indicted will certainly face the law.

“Benue people can be rest assured that my second term in office is all I have to stop these corrupt practices in the state and I will do it. If it requires stepping on toes irrespective of who is involved I will do just that,” he added.
