Gov. Samuel Ortom says the Buhari administration is the worst when it comes to security issues.
Benue state Governor, in an interview with Channels TV’s Sunrise Daily on Tuesday, August 24, criticized the President’s open-grazing policy and asserted that it is very clear he wants to “fulanize,” because he is not the first Fulani president.
According to Ortom
“Mr President is pushing me to think that what they say about him, that he has a hidden agenda in this country is true because it is very clear that he wants to fulanise but he is not the first Fulani president. “Shagari was a Fulani President, Yar’ Adua was a Fulani President and they were the best in the history. But President Buhari is the worst President when it comes to issues of security and keeping his promises. “Go back to 2015, what did he say, human rights issues, he talked about press freedom, about the economy, corruption, security, tell me one that Mr President has achieved. “He has achieved some level of development in other sectors but these prominent things that are concerns to Nigerians and we are all worried about.. tell me when Mr President has come out to address them. Is it corruption, we are worse in the history of this country”.
In addition, he said
Having stated that he believes that open grazing only worsens security, Ortom said that it is unfortunate that despite the overwhelming consensus that ranching is the way to go in order to resolve the crisis, the President is still maintaining his position in favor of open grazing.
“If Mr President respects the law, the Land Use Act gives governors the power to preside over land administration on behalf of the people that they govern. “So it is amazing and I am surprise to hear this coming from Mr President as if he doesn’t have an Attorney General, or Lawyers around him to advise him. I think Mr President was misquoted or he did it out of error. He should come out to apologise to Nigerians.”
