Ortom: I Won't Stop Criticizing Buhari And APC by nairavsdollars(f): 7:13pm On Jun 03
Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has said all those who are seeking to shut him up from speaking out his mind in criticizing the ruling government, especially on issues that affect the country, should ensure that they serve the people of the country justice, fairness and equity.

Describing himself as a man who stands and seek justice, equity and fairness in all things, Ortom challenged the All Progressive Congress (APC) led Federal Government to provide the needed leadership for the country, saying “our people are in pains.”

The Benue governor spoke on Thursday at the commissioning ceremony of the 65km Moniya-Ijaiye-Iseyin which held at Akinyele local government secretariat, Moniya, Ibadan.

He said “Oyo and indeed the Yoruba nation have always stood with and supported the oppressed and have always been the voice of the oppressed in the country right from the inception.

“That is what I stand for. I seek for justice, equity and fairness. For those who feel that Samuel Ortom is talking too much, I want to appeal to them, to give me justice, give our people justice, give our people fairness and ensure equity. I promise you that I will never say anything again.”

He called on the APC led federal government to rise up and give leadership to the country noting that the situation of things was not as bad as it is today when the party took over reigns of affairs in 2015.

“Let me once again call on the APC led Federal Government to rise up and give leadership. Our people are in pains.

“From the North-East, North Central, North-West, South-South, South East and Southwest, everyone is faced with security challenges. Without security, there can be no meaningful development except in PDP controlled states.

Buhari can only increase the number of terrorist plauging our land. Which is why this country must be divided so that each man can stand on his own

Sadly, criticism alone can not propel the lame duck President to action, his loyalty is to his Fulani kinsmen before anything else and will require more than armchair criticism to see Buhari bared his fang.

Ortom is one of the most useless governors in this country. Despite the fact that farming is the mainstay occupation in Benue, I have never seen him in the news commissioning anything in agriculture or even infrastructure as the state governor.
He constantly uses "Fulani Herdsmen" to divert attention away from his ineptitude and stealing.

Is Benue the only state experiencing insecurity challenges in Nigeria? Even the NE has a lot to show in terms of development in spite of their insecurity challenges.
He has completely refused to empower his people throughout his tenure. The way Benue people are thronging Lagos in search of daily living is so appalling.
Benue state indigenes are mostly uneducated and they have high birth rates in spite of their low economic status.

Many states in the SE and NC are bedeviled by bad leadership.
So sad!

The rate of herdsmen killings in Venue State is alarming. Guess it's time the governor sets up outfits like Amoteku in that State and equip them too.

Would be nice for Ortom to be useful to Benue State rather than focusing all his time and efforts on criticising Buhari. You were voted to do a job. Do it

Senate should better adopt a doctrine of necessity to spearhead the scrapping of this constitution and handle the process of evolving a fresh people's constitution that Citizens' agitations can all be resolved. A constitution that everyone can OWN and be proud of. Not a Military constitution for civilians. Anything that can calm strained nerves and make people Peaceful should be done.
Or else you people will soon be scrapped

Constitutional review : Security should be headed by Indigines of the state.

If Nigeria truely want an atmosphere where security of life we be maintained and be accountable the Security review must be included in Constitutional amendment on going. In my opinion every Security in each state be it Army or police should be headed by Indigines of that state and should be elected base on his or her good record. That person should be nominated base on constituency by traditional heads and elected by the people of the state. The same goes to Security head of the Nigeria which must be nominated by region and will be elected by people. This person must be recalled when security is bad. 

Why do we have to review security arrangements? In Nigeria today we are more divided than before and all fingers pointed at those in Authorities for sponsoring insecurity going on in Nigeria and the same people impose or appoint Security head to us without any objection from the public. We have obligation as a citizen and indignies to play a role on who head the Security that protect us in Nigeria. 

The issue of Abuja appointing a security head in State has made many Governors incapacitated to carried any security challenges affecting his people if Abuja did not approved such move, even when is obvious his people see such incidence as a crime that should be treated asuch. Take the issue of killer herdsmen ban in Southern Nigeria but refuse to be approved by Abuja. Today they are still going there normal destroying business without no security arresting them.

Some security men and women are religion extremist and this is one of the implication when such person or individual appointed a security head in a state where his or her religion is not present. The protection of life is beyound religion.

Most of our young innocent men and women are killed by triggered happy men and women in Security uniform ( police&Army) and when a report of such incidence are made . The head of Security will covered it up simple because the Security man or woman who committed such crime is from the part of Country he come from. It need to stop any criminal have to be deal with wather security or civilians. 

There are alot of negative implications happening in Nigeria as a result of Security arrangements in this Country. Take look at Benue, Ebonyi, Borno and imo there Governors have cried helplessly to no avail. Our innocent citizens have being murdered without regard to the Authority. We need to stop this by holding any security head in our state responsible by electing him and able to recalled him when he is not performing as expected. 

Federal security should be in stand by to assist a state when insecurity is out of hand. This is my opinion and for interest of peace and justice in our security system should be included in ongoing constitutional review.

You want him to govern dead people?
What he is doing is part of his job. No society can function effectively without security. The federal controls all security apparatus and he is not getting their support. The security outfit he instituted was messed up by the government.
You people come online and talk like you have zero knowledge of things.
