The Students Union President of Benue State University, Mr Bobby Tavershima has refuted media reports that the Governor ordered an attack on him.
The SU President who spoke to BENUE.COM.NG was last Wednesday attacked by some student leaders who claimed to be acting on the instructions of the governor but he said the incident was blown out of proportion by the media.
” Please don’t quote me wrong, I did not say the governor sent people to beat me.”
He explained that those who attacked him were aggrieved student leaders who thought that he was using protest to get money from government without sharing with then, an allegations he denied.
” they think I’m getting money from protest but I have not collected a kobo from anybody. Nobody has given me anything since this strike started” He said.
Mr Bobby said what happened was a part of local school politics which he promised to deal with internally as the President. He also said the university management was on the case and warned that nobody should pit against the government.
“The government is working and paying salary. Students will soon resume so please nobody use me to fight a peace-loving governor like Ortom.”Meanwhile, sources close to the Benue State Governor, Dr Samuel Ortom have revealed that the Governor had nothing to do with the attack on the Benue State University Students Union President, Mr Bobby Tavershima.
“The Governor is not happy about the incident and is looking into it. Ortom is a god fearing man. It is the work of mischief makers who want to drag the Governor’s name in mud”, Our source who pleaded anonymity said.
