Orogu added that even being the highest receiving allocation governors in the history of Nasarawa State governance, he cannot show anyone billion naira project executed in Alago Community or on any of his party loyalists?
Speaking on the infringement of a popular local Alago’s magazine programme on the state-owned radio (NBS FM, Lafia), Orogu condemned the act, describing it as impunity of highest order that would jeopardise the nascent democracy in the state.
