According to the Benue-born General, “God has really heard the cries of Nigerians and Benue people and He has decided to intervene at this crucial period of our lives by giving us the combinations of Gen. Muhammad Buhari and Chief Samuel Ortom.
“I had the opportunity of serving in Gen. Buhari’s home state, Katsina and all I can tell you is that, he is the kind of man that Nigerians need now, owing to his zero tolerance for corruption.
“I’m very sure he would purge the country of the corruption that has eaten deep into her linen and also position the nation in more favourable economic position among the comity of nations”.
The Chieftain of Arewa Consultative Forum also said that God purposely brought Ortom to Benue State to liberate the Food Basket State from drowning.
“Imagine how Civil Servants die cheaply because of nonpayment of salaries and also Students can’t graduate regularly due to incessant strike actions.
