Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has said that those who are calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign are ‘elements’ that needed to have their heads examined for insanity.
He that God has heard the prayers of most Nigerians and restored his health, wondering where the adversaries would put their faces.
The governor, who has been away in China to meet with investors for the industrialization of the agrarian state, spoke to newsmen at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja upon his return.
He said that the enemies of the President who are making a fuss out of his ill-health, are ignorant of the fact that they too can fall sick except if they want to say that they were super humans.
“Those calling for Buhari’s resignation should have their heads examined. There is nothing special about a human being getting sick. They should rather pray for him. The good thing is that God has answered Nigerians’ prayers and restored him.”
Governor Ortom also accused his opponents of issuing an ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen to quit the state so as to destabilize his administration and plunge the state into turmoil.
“There is no reason for any group to give any ultimatum to anybody or group in my state. The law on grazing is not meant to give anyone breeding cattle in any part of my state any ultimatum to leave the state. What we want is for people to ranch their cattle and nothing more.”
“Nigerians are free to live and work in any parts of Benue State and we have no given anyone the authority to threaten any other person under any guise whatsoever and the police should go after those who issued the threat and bring them to book. There is no ultimatum in Benue State.”
