0 251

Dr. Samuel Ortom of Benue State lamented over missing application of equity, justice and fairness in Nigeria since the emergence of President Mohammadu Buhari’s led administration.

Dr. Ortom pointedly noted that the country has ceased to promote both enlisted virtues since 2015.

The former APC stalwart lamented that until these pointed out virtues are embrace nationwide every member of the country may remain entangled and never be free.

The Governor asserted in Port Harcourt on Tuesday during the commissioning of Tombia Road, Ndoni Street and Amaji Street in New GRA Phase 2, in Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.

He said Naira depreciation has negatively affected Nigeria’s economy and the absence of security experienced since the leadership of APC.

Ortom cried out over the increasing unemployment rate within the country giving room for Youth restiveness.

“Today, there is no more employment for our youths. That gave rise to the youth’s restiveness agitation called EndSars Protest.

He bemoaned the increasing defection of PDP members to the leading party adding that moving to APC is not what a right-thinking man should consider. “We cannot be a one-party state.

The PDP in 2015 did not suppress the opposition party to turn Nigeria to be one-party state.

Then, that is not a democracy anymore and so we want to appreciate governor Wike for standing as the beckons of the PDP.

“Wike is a very strong voice not just in Rivers State but in the whole country. He is a courageous and fearless leader, who is out for equity, fairness, and justice.

And that is what we need in our country today. “As of today, the ruling party has not given us equity, fairness and justice.

That is why we are having problems in this country,” he said. Read all
