The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has revealed that he would continue to speak up against open grazing in order to save the country from anarchy.
Governor Ortom spoke in his hometown, Tse-Adorogo, Nzorov Council Ward of Guma Local Government Area, Local Government Area of the state. According to him, he owes nobody any apology over his recent position on insecurity.
He said, “I have been agitating in the last five years that it is time to end open grazing in Nigeria to put an end to the herders’ crisis that has now snowballed into a major threat to national security. By the grace of God, we will get there and we will all be happier for it. And like I said at the time, our agitation for ranching will one day be celebrated like we did June 12 because it is the best global practice to enthrone peace in our dear country.”
Governor Ortom added, “As far as I am doing the right thing to save our country, I owe no one an apology particularly those in positions of authority who would rather choose to remain silent and watch our country head towards anarchy. We will continue to do the right things as far as my people are with me and the majority of Nigerians know that I stand for the truth and nothing more in order to save our country.”
