Ortom urges Benue citizens to bury political, religious differences to tackle insecurity
Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has urged all indigenes of the state to shun political, religious and other affiliations to team up with the state government to tackle the insecurity going on in the state.
Ortom stated this yesterday in Makurdi when the state Chairman of Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP), Mr. Joseph Tondo, led other members of the association on a condolence visit to him.
He said there was need for synergy, with a singular aim of tackling the insecurity in the state head on, noting that terrorists do not differentiate among political parties; hence the need to work together to tackle the menace.
The governor stated that the attacks on the state by Fulani herdsmen were not targeted at grazing, but with intent to take over Benue, as they have made their intentions known at several for a, including press conferences.
Earlier, Tondo said they had come to commiserate with the governor over the incessant killings of Benue people by herdsmen, which have caused a lot of setback to the state.
He commended Ortom for his pragmatic steps in handling the crisis, adding that they were very proud of him and sued for sustenance of the spirit.
The CNPP chairman described Ortom as a governor for all, regardless of political differences, as seen in the appointments he had made, which cut across party lines.
