Buhari is Running Nigeria with two different constitution – Gov Ortom

From Markus Ligom, Makurdi

The outspoken Governor of Benue state Dr. Samuel Ortom,has criticised President Muhammadu Buhari’s government, accusing the administration of running the country with two different constitutions.

The governor who addressed journalists in Makurdi, the Benue state capital said that the government who arrested harmless leader of Indegenious People of Biafra Nnamdi Kanu, on account of planing war , gave amnesty to the killer Boko Haram .

“Buhari’s government arrested Sunday Igboho, with no clear case of breaching the Constitution,but the same government refused to declared bandits as terrorists, even when the military authority confirmed that they are terrorists.”

” For me it is clear that the president is not using the 1999 constitution,he is using a different document.You cannot arrest Kanu and leader of Miyeti Allah who always claimed responsibility for killings in Benue, Plateau and Southern Kaduna is moving freely without the security arresting him,it is shocking,”he said.

Ortom who was visibly angry pointed out that over 137,000 people are killed in Benue state with over 100 security officials by blood testy Fulani herdsmen, who he said they carried arms more than the military and they are not arrested.

He said that the division Buhari’s administration has created in the country will be difficult to reunite Nigeria as one indivisible nation.

The governor disclosed further that the federal government under Buhari belongs only to Fulani States.

” How can Buhari’s government explain why Benue, Plateau and Southern Kaduna Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) are not qualify to benefit from the federal government relief materials distributed to Fulani States and killer herdsmen,” he lamented.

Ortom who vowed that he will continue to speak out on the unholy activities of the the present administration,noted that the coming generation will blame meddlebelt leaders if they fail to stand against agents of darkness.

He urged patriotic leaders from South West, south East and South- south regions not to bow to evils against their people because of personal benefits that have no long time values.
