Don’t dismiss calls for restructuring, Ortom ‘tells FG
Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has advised the Federal Government not to dismiss the ongoing calls for the restructuring of the country and other views expressed by the people as ‘unpatriotic outbursts’.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, yesterday, Ortom noted that “Nigeria is practising democracy, which guarantees freedom of speech to all citizens,” and not military regime, which would suppress the right of the people to expression.
The governor’s advice was coming on the heels of the Presidency’s reaction to the statement accredited to the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Enoch Adeboye, who suggested that the way out of the myriad of socio-economic problems in Nigeria was restructuring of the country.
The governor said there was nothing new about Adeboye’s call, which he said should be considered as patriotic and selfless.
