Everything is in bad shape under Buhari’s government – Ortom

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has claimed that everything is in bad shape under President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.

He berated the claim by the All Progressive Congress (APC) that it has achieved a lot since it took over the government from the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in 2015.

According to him, the security architecture of the country, the economy and everything are in bad shape under the current administration.

Ortom made the assertion in his remark shortly after signing the state’s amended grazing bill into law at the government house in Makurdi.

The Governor, also in his remark, accused the President of neglecting his state in the scheme of things so much that the citizens have not felt the impact of his administration.

He said: “Mr President, Benue State is not enjoying your government that is why even your party members from APC are all coming to PDP because they are not sure of being part of your government.

“Every day, even yesterday APC members in the House of Assembly have decamped to PDP because the impact is not there. The pains are too much, the economy is in bad shape, the security is in bad shape, everything is in bad shape.”

Governor Ortom went on to note that the 5000 bags of rice showcased in the Abuja pyramid to indicate that the Buhari administration was making headway did not depict reality.

He stressed that the APC government has not achieved anything, adding that since he had been barred from seeing the president, the only means to communicate the truth, which he had told him in the past and would continue to tell him, is through the media.
