Gov Ortom Announces Withdrawal From Political Activities Over Benue Massacre.

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has announced withdrawal from political activities in the state.

His action followed the recent killing of people in the state by suspected Fulani herdsmen.

Addressing Critical Benue Stakeholders at the Benue People’s House, Makurdi today on the renewed Fulani herdsmen invasion and Government’s efforts so far, Ortom said he would desist from attending political functions until the issue was addressed.

He said, “Henceforth, I have withdrawn from any political activity for now, till peace returns to Benue State. No one should think of 2019 for now; the year will take care of itself. I was elected to lead the living, not the dead. I’m not afraid of death.

“I would rather die defending my people. This is beyond politics, I have called all former governors of Benue, David Mark and party leaders, even in the opposition. Let us chase the fox before we scout for the chicken.”

  1. That is not the same as resignation; right?
    The honorable thing to do is to resign but are the Nigerian "politrictians" honorable?

    1. You forgot to include the part where your people stoned you in Martial over your silence on Fulani herdsmen killing them anyhow.....should I refresh your memory sir?

  2. Strategy?!😉 kolewerk.. Incompetent Mr.

  3. This is a wise move. And a sure signal to Buhari that this is beyond politics

  4. Good decision.

  5. I hope he stands firm to his words cos he too is a problem in that benue. Used Christianity and blinded us, even laid on the floor begging us to vote him into power that he understands the pain of the benue pple after suswan used our money to sponsor his hoes and touts. Ah Suswan, it's only God that will judge u. Your problems have not started oh, you will suffer. Ehn back to that fack govonor, isn't he APC? Shey campaign will soon start? His book of remembrance shall be opened....I just hope my pple have received sense.

  6. Good. And buhari has not even visited the state. Let him continue fooling himself.

  7. Good decision, I hope he stand by his word

  8. Benue people are angry with you and you know the 2019 election is fast approaching..wise moves.
