Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has appealed to Nigerians to put partisan politics, religion and ethnic sentiments aside and team up with the People’s Democratic Party, PDP to rescue Nigeria from the bad leadership of the APC-led Government.
Governor Ortom made the appeal Friday, 10th December, 2021 while speaking with Government House Press Crew in Abuja after the swearing-in of the new National Working Committee of the PDP led by its Chairman, Dr. Iyorchia Ayu and other members of the National Working Committee, NWC.
The Governor stated that due to the abysmal performance of the APC, the economy of the country has been completely ruined with millions of Nigerians without jobs while the country is going through the worst security challenges.
In his words, ” I want to appreciate God and to say that despite all that is happening economically, security wise and socially where Nigerians are mourning, in pains and lamenting every day, nobody is happy again that we have a country called Nigeria. But with the swearing in of a new leadership of the PDP in place which is an alternative to the APC-led Government, I am hopeful for myself, for my state and for my country Nigeria. And this is a project that every one of us must ensure that we work towards rescuing Nigeria and rebuilding it as our National chairman has said”
Governor Ortom lamented that while killings of innocent citizens are going on everyday in the country by bandits who have formed themselves a parallel Government, President Muhammadu Buhari was comfortable attending Trade Fair in Dubai instead of working to fix the challenges.
The Governor expressed hope that the coming in of Dr. Ayu and other members of the National Working Committee marks the beginning of the rescue mission and called on the people to work together to rebuild the country which the founding fathers envisaged.
