Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom apologises to Nigerians for supporting President Buhari in 2015

Benue State, Samuel Ortom

State Governor, apologised to Nigerians and the people of the state for supporting the election of President Buhari in 2015

Ortom stated this during his campaign tour of Wanune, in the Tarka Local Area of the state, the governor said that he was following the footstep of former President Olusegun , who had apologised to Nigerians.


He explained that he was doing same because the President Buhari-led administration had not only allegedly failed to live up to expectations but also condoned the atrocities of Fulani herdsmen across the country.

“All complaints for the arrest and prosecution of leaders of Fulani groups that sponsored the killing of our people in the state and destruction of property fell on deaf ears.” According to him, while Buhari’s kinsmen, the late Presidents Shehu Shagari and Umaru Yar’adua, appointed several Tiv people as ministers in their cabinets, the President had allegedly appointed none, in spite of the fact that the ethnic group which voted massively for him in 2015 was estimated to be the fourth largest in the country.

He, therefore, urged the people to support his re-election as Governor and that of the presidential candidate of the PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, as President, in the forthcoming general elections.
