Buhari working for fulani to take over Nigeria, Ortom alleges


Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has accused the President, Muhammadu Buhari of working for the Fulani ethnic group to take over Nigeria.
The governor spoke on Tuesday while condemning the killing in parts of Benue state allegedly by herdsmen.
According to Ortom, no fewer than 70 people have been killed in the last two weeks in three local governments in the Benue state.
The governor, who declared that the killings must not continue, called on Buhari to take urgent steps to contain the situation.
The governor said: “What is happening now, to me, is very clear; Mr President is just working for these Fulanis to take over the whole country.”
“His body language is what is being played out. The body language, the action and inaction of Mr President shows that he is only the President of Fulani people; I have known this.”
Ortom said the people of Benue were being pushed to the wall and are running out of patience as a result of the incessant attacks on their communities.
“We are becoming a Banana Republic, if we have a President who gave the security agencies order to shoot at sight, whosoever is having AK-47 and the Minister of Defence came out to say that they cannot shoot at sight… so who is the Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces?, the governor said.
Ortom said further that, the President must rise up, noting that, “he is the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, and over the 250 nationalities that are in this country; Mr President is their President, we all voted him.”
Ortom said Buhari took the oath of office to secure the country and provide security for lives and property, pointing out that the current security situation in the country was unacceptable”.
