The governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari is a grandfather who should understand that the country is collapsing due to activities of “terrorists”.
Governor Ortom tackled the President in a message issued today December 18 on the occasion of the President’s 79th birthday which was on Friday, December 17.
In the birthday message signed by his media aide, Nathaniel Okyur, the governor said the insecurity being experienced in all parts of the country is not what the president promised when he assumed office in 2015. The governor, who said he loves President Buhari, urged the president to stop listening to sycophants as all is not well with Nigeria.
“I join your family, friends, political associates and all Nigerians to congratulate you on the occasion of your 79th birthday.
To some, the president is a father, to others, grandfather while yet to others, he is a great grandfather who should understand that Nigeria at the moment is collapsing due to the activities of terrorists who have continued to destroy the very foundation of the unity of this country.
Daily, people are slaughtered like animals either on their farms, at home or roasted to death while travelling from one destination to another with video clips showing the faces of the killers. Yet, no one has been arrested.
The roads have become booby traps where the citizenry are scared to travel on, for the fear that they may be kidnapped for ransom or in some cases killed outrightly. It is an open secret that no one is safe in this country any longer. The president should not listen to sycophants who may not be telling him the truth that all is well.
All is not well with Nigeria right now, Mr President. You must therefore take urgent steps now to pull the nation back from the precipice before it is too late.”
