The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has said he was ready to die for the truth.
Ortom, who recently dumped the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, pointed out that since he detached himself from godfathers, he has started paying salaries of state workers as at when due.
The governor said this on Tuesday while swearing in eight newly-appointed commissioners.
According to him, “There is no godfatherism again under my watch and that is why you can see that since I detached myself from godfathers, even salaries, I have been able to pay.”
Ortom also said that he was looking for other ways to offset the remaining arrears of salaries owed Benue workers as soon as possible.
The Governor also said that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, was now working for All Progressives Congress, APC.
