Ortom stated this on Friday, September 30 in a goodwill message to mark Nigeria’s 62nd Independence anniversary.

In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Nathaniel Ikyur, the governor maintained that “There must be a country before personal ambitions can be realized,” pointing out that “Nigeria has experienced unprecedented decay in the last seven years where lives of citizens do not matter and therefore everyone must come together to rebuild it for our children and the next generation.”

Ortom also harped on the need to strengthen the security architecture of the country, saying that “an unsecured nation neither guarantee peaceful coexistence nor engender progress or development.”

He lamented that virtually every part of the country is under siege and is threatened by terrorists and bandits who are seizing Nigeria’s sovereignty, pointing out that “No one is truly safe in his or her home, schools, worship centers, places of works and on the roads”.

On the 2023 general elections, the governor urged public office seekers to put the unity and peace of Nigeria first above personal ambitions.

While canvassing for a free, fair and credible elections, the governor reiterated that efforts must be geared towards effective security for all so as “To guarantee an unhindered or unimpeded conduct of the forthcoming elections.”

The governor cautioned against the resort to mundane issues during campaigns that may put asunder, the already fragile cohesion and corporate existence of the country following suspicion and anger building among various ethnic nationalities.

He also urged the political class and all stakeholders to abide by the rules of the game to ensure that the 2023 elections produces the choice of the people.

Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily had reported that Ortom had said there is no magic APC can conjure to win the 2023 presidential election.
