APC chieftain blasts Ortom over ‘reckless’ utterances about Buhari

Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC and Coordinator, Concerned Progressive Stakeholders, CPS, Garus Gololo, has described the recent statement by the Benue State governor, Dr. Samuel Ortom about President Muhammadu Buhari on the killings in the state as “reckless, irresponsible and proof of lack of leadership.”

Ortom was reported to have accused Buhari of plans to exterminate Benue people while featuring on a live television programme recently.

But Gololo, in a statement issued in Abuja, described the governor as a “serial failure who is looking for a lifeline.”

He said it was “disenchanting for a state executive who had squandered the commonwealth of the state building personal enterprises within and outside Nigeria to constantly run to the media to camouflage his incompetence.”

“We are aware of the businesses he had set up in China, which are managed by his sister.

“He should tell Benue people the source of the money he used in setting up these enterprises which were not in existence prior to 2015 when he came into office,” he stressed.

The APC chieftain added that “Ortom should understand that in as much as he is playing politics, President Buhari is not his mate whether in age, career, or in any sense of it.”

“So, to reduce the federal government to Buhari, asking him to come and kill the Benue people in order to make way for grazing routes amounts to stupidity and recklessness of the highest order.

“As such, the Presidency should not dignify it with a response. Rather, it should allow those outside who understand the workings of government respond accordingly to Ortom,” he further stated.

Gololo also challenged the governor to explain why he converted Modern Market, Adeke Industrial Layout, Naka route, Air Force base at Guma, all public facilities developed by his predecessors, to his personal properties.

He equally accused Ortom of having nothing on ground to show for the humongous federal allocations enjoyed by the state since 2015.
