Ortom, who disclosed this during a press conference in Makurdi the State’s capital, wondered if Buhari was aware that his government had been hijacked by the cabals who are disrupting the intentions he had in mind when he assumed office in 2015.
The governor called on the president to rise up to his responsibilities and take steps to correct what is happening before the country will be overrun by bandits and unknown gunmen.
He said, “I know that Mr president intended well when he came into power in 2015 but some cabals have taken over the country, and they are dragging Nigeria to the mud.
“I’m not sure Mr president is aware of what is happening, if he was, I believe that he would have risen up to his responsibilities and take steps to correct what is happening.
“Many people who have been intimidated cannot speak, can’t open up even to advise the president. We are getting to the level that if nothing is done to redeem the situation we are in, the unknown gunmen, bandits will take over this country and we will be nowhere.
“For me, I am concerned as a Nigerian, as a patriotic person who believes in Nigeria as you can see the symbol of unity that I carry on my cap which I wear everywhere I go in this world. I believe in the unity of this country”.
KanyiDaily recalls that Governor Samuel Ortom said that the worst military government in Nigeria is better than the current President Muhammadu Buhari-led All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
