Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has berated the state of the nation under the All Progressive Congress, APC, government led by President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP governor said no citizen is happy there is a country called Nigeria due to the fact that the nation’s security and economic status is becoming progressively worse than ever.
Naija News reports that Governor Ortom made the statement on Friday, December 10, during the swearing-in of the new National Working Committee of the PDP led by its Chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu and other members of the National Working Committee, NWC.
The North-Central State governor appealed to Nigerians to work together for the restoration of the country’s glory.
Ortom urged all citizens of the country to put partisan politics, religion and ethnic sentiments aside and team up with the PDP for the rescue of the nation.
The Governor stated that due to the abysmal performance of the APC, the economy of the country has been completely ruined with millions of Nigerians without jobs, while the country is going through the worst security challenges.
“I want to appreciate God and to say that despite all that is happening economically, security-wise and socially where Nigerians are mourning, in pain and lamenting every day, nobody is happy again that we have a country called Nigeria,” said Ortom while speaking with Government House Press Crew in Abuja after the swearing-in ceremony.
He added: “But with the swearing-in of a new leadership of the PDP in place which is an alternative to the APC-led Government, I am hopeful for myself, for my state and for my country Nigeria. And this is a project that every one of us must ensure that we work towards rescuing Nigeria and rebuilding it as our National chairman has said.”
Governor Ortom lamented that while killings of innocent citizens are going on every day in the country by bandits who have formed themselves a parallel Government, President Muhammadu Buhari was comfortable attending Trade Fair in Dubai instead of working to fix the challenges.
