People asking Buhari to resign had mental problem– Ortom

Samuel Ortom, the Governor of Benue State, has said those calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to resign are ‘elements’ that needed to have their heads examined for insanity.

He also mocked the enemies of the president, saying that God has heard the prayers of most Nigerians and restored his health, wondering where the adversaries would put their faces.
The governor, who has been away in China to meet with investors for the industrialisation of the agrarian state, said this while addressing newsmen at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja upon his return.
He further chastised the enemies of the president for making a fuss out of his ill-health, wondering whether they were above sickness or whether they were super humans.
“Those calling for Buhari’s resignation should have their heads examined. There is nothing special about a human being getting sick. They should rather pray for him. The good thing is that God has answered Nigerians’ prayers and restored him,” he said.
Ortom also accused his opponents of issuing an ultimatum to Fulani herdsmen to quit the state so as to destabilise his administration and plunge the state into turmoil.
The governor said: “There is no reason for any group to give any ultimatum to anybody or group in my state. The law on grazing is not meant to give anyone breeding cattle in any part of my state any ultimatum to leave the state. What we want is for people to ranch their cattle and nothing more.”

“Nigerians are free to live and work in any parts of Benue State and we have no given anyone the authority to threaten any other person under any guise whatsoever and the police should go after those who issued the threat and bring them to book. There is no ultimatum in Benue State,” the governor said.
