|Blame Buhari, Osibanjo For The Attacks In Benue- Ortom by arabbunkum: 9:38am On Jan 14|
The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has told the Senate and Nigerians to blame President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo for killings and destruction of properties by Fulani herders in the state.
Ortom said this at a meeting with the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on Security, which is in the state on a fact-finding mission on the attacks.
The governor accused Muhammadu Buhari, Vice -President Yemi Osinbajo; the National Security Adviser, Maj.- Gen. Babagana Monguno (retd.); and the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris of ignoring several warnings on the impending attack on communities in Benue.
The governor informed the lawmakers that upon getting information of the planned attacks, he immediately wrote a letter to Osinbajo, who was the Acting President, while Buhari was on medical vacation in London.
Ortom said all efforts made to get the vice-president ’s attention through the letter failed as he got no reply from Osinbajo.
Ortom said he also wrote letters to Buhari after his return to Nigeria but got no response from him.
He said out of desperation, the Benue State Government went further to draw the attention of Monguno in a separate letter addressed to the NSA, but still got no communication from him.
His words, “We wrote to the vice – president on the planned attacks on parts of Benue by Fulani herdsmen, because the threat was everywhere on the streets, but he refused to reply.
“However, when Mr. President returned from the United Kingdom, I intimated him through a letter. The documents are here.
“I wrote to him on the planned attack by Fulani herdsmen because the threats were on the streets.
“On October 7 , 2017, I wrote to the Inspector-General of Police; I told him of a planned attack on our people but there was no response (from the Presidency).
“On October 27 , 2017, I reminded him that these people were planning to attack us, that we are law- abiding, we have disarmed our youths and we are looking unto security agencies, and that the way to do it was to arrest those people who were inciting the herdsmen to combat us, and we knew they were going to come.
“I also wrote the Senate President (Bukola Saraki), and the Speaker (House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara) on October 7. I also wrote the National Security Adviser and the Director- General of the Department of State Services to intimate them on the planned attacks. When there was no action, I followed it up with a reminder on October 27 , 2017.
“This is very sad. I know those people who are responsible for the killings. I accused them and I have evidences against them.
“If I had bought guns and gave to my people, would they have been killed in the manner they were killed? I disarmed my people. I’ve not bought a single gun, I’m a Christian. If I bought, I would say so.”

Whoever gave Ortom these balls should be commended.
With that said, does anyone know if that vice chairman of Meyitti Allah has been arrested after he threatened more bloodshed? Imagine the shithole demanding a federating unit of the federal republic of Nigeria to rescind it's law.... who is he? Who are they?
For the fools who said the Fulani herdsmen are being sponsored by the opposition PDP, guess you fools Now have the full glare of the whole picture?
Can anyone still beat his Chest and say he's proud of his choice to have voted Buhari?

A very brave and wise governor. I admire his foresight in signing the controversial law. These are the kind of governors Nigerians should always be voting for.
|Re: Blame Buhari, Osibanjo For The Attacks In Benue- Ortom by OfficialAwol(m): 10:05am On Jan 14|
Jonathan's only sin was that he was a meek man. His other sin was to believe in straightforwardness.
Can you point where Buhari has done better than Jonathan? Just one is OK.
|Re: Blame Buhari, Osibanjo For The Attacks In Benue- Ortom by amnesty7: 10:07am On Jan 14|
Shadbay:I wonder o. When he was thoughtlessly signing the law without wide consultation and consideration for near and remote consequences was he intoxicated?

But the truth is fulani herdmen are nigerians and have every right any other nigeria have.
Freedom of movement is in your constitution,they are in title move with their cows.
As for you ipob referendum is not in nigeria constitution.
Black shithole country.

So Jonathan's supposed abysmal performance justifies losing every sense of self preservation and wisdom to make safe choices? U aren't serious yet.
|Re: Blame Buhari, Osibanjo For The Attacks In Benue- Ortom by freeze001(f): 10:54am On Jan 14|
Since Jonathan made buhari electable, why the noise? Has Buhari acted contrary to his nature and true self? Has he changed from the religious and ethnic bigot with zero economic and leadership competence he has always been? What made you start criticising him?
|Re: Blame Buhari, Osibanjo For The Attacks In Benue- Ortom by nnachukz(m): 10:57am On Jan 14|
I will repeat this, the Vice president is just a figure head. He has been completely caged and can do nothing even in acting position as the President. He only reads what is written and given to him even when it contains obvious lies not minding that he is a pastor and shouldn't lie. That is how dirty politics is.
Him and Buhari including their supporters have blood in their hands and will be visited by Mr Karma at the right time.
What a man plants by supporting a complicit murderer, that he must reap.
