Nigeria’s worst military regime better than Buhari-led govt – Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration cannot even be compared to military governments.

Ortom who spoke to journalists in Makurdi after his return from Abuja said the nation had not been so divided as it was under the present regime, stressing that the worst military government was better than present administration.

He said the success of the Peoples Democratic Party convention on Saturday had rekindled the hope of Nigerians and assured that the party was poised to take over power.

He said, “We (PDP) are determined to take over leadership of this country, come 2023 because of the failure of APC led government.

“They are being deceitful and not being able to secure our land. They have rather succeeded in destroying our economy, our security, our social life and everything you can think of in this country.

“I have been privileged to read the history of Nigeria and those that have been destroying us including the military. Usually, we say that the worst democratic government is better than the military government.

“That is what we used to say but for the purpose of APC-led government, I want to say that the worst military government we have had in Nigeria is better than this particular government led by APC.

“I have never seen anything like this; people who don’t want you to tell them the truth or advise them try to twist things and tell the world that you are against them.”

The governor admonished Nigerians to join hands with the opposition PDP to rescue the country.

He alleged that the farm settlement being canvassed by the present regime was aimed at populating the nation with foreign Fulanis, adding that Benue would continue to oppose the bid to take over Benue land.
