Nigeria Is On Drip, Oxygen: Ortom

Nigeria Is On Drip… On Oxygen, Says Ortom
Samuel Ortom

According to Samuel Ortom, the governor of Benue State, Nigeria’s existence is in peril.

Along with Nyesom Wike, the governor of Rivers state, and Okezie Ikpeazu, the governor of Abia, the governor addressed newsmen at the Port Harcourt International Airport on Friday as they arrived back in the nation.

The governors of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) recently traveled to Europe where they met with the three front-runners for president.

Ortom stated immediately after their arrival: “We are looking at how we can harness ideas and put ourselves together to ensure that we get out of the present challenge we are in today in Nigeria.

“From top to bottom, consider what has happened from 2015 and where we are today. So, what we are doing is a concern that we have for our country, Nigeria.

“This is beyond partisan politics. We are looking at how we can come together and find a way of ensuring that Nigeria survives. Nigeria is on a drip, Nigeria is on oxygen and it is about how can we get out of this.

“We have individually also had earlier commitments in Europe even if consultations are still going on because nothing concrete has been decided. The consultation is going on and will continue to go on. We are still going to meet here.”
