Nigeria’s former Aviation Minister and PDP chieftain, Femi Fani-Kayode, who has lent his voice to the uprising in Benue State leading to deaths of many, has revealed what Governor Ortom must do in order to succeed in governing the state.
“If Gov. Ortom of Benue state is really ready to take on the Fulani herdsmen in his state as he claims then the first thing that he needs to do is to leave the APC and stop worshipping Buhari. APC belongs to Miyetti Allah, to the Fulani militants and to their cows.”
It has also been gathered that Governor Ortom reportedly withdrew from all political activities, until the problem of herdsmen invasion in the state is adequately addressed by the Federal government. He further disclosed that he went out of his party, to seek solution to the mayhem that has been unleashed to residents of Benue State.
“I have decided to withdraw from every political activities until this problem is over. I cannot be a leader over dead people. 2019 is in God’s hand. This time, there is need for synergy, cooperation and unity among every Benue people across party lines.
“Yesterday for the first time in months, I called the former governor, Gabriel Suswam and former Senate President, David Mark to inform them about the stakeholders meeting today but was told the former governor traveled out of the country. This issue is beyond party politics” he reportedly said.
