Benue Governor Samuel Ortom has explained why he always criticised the Federal Government.
Ortom said contrary to what is perceived in some quarters; he criticised the Federal Government to make the government work better for the people and not vilify the office of the President.
The Governor stated this on Sunday during a Thanksgiving Mass in honour of the Tor Sankera, HRH, Chief Abu King Shuluwa held at the Catholic Youth Centre Church Makurdi, the Benue State capital.
Ortom said “most of the policies of the Federal Government which I kick against are clearly anti-people, especially those that effect our people. And my criticisms are meant to make the government live up to its responsibilities to the people and not intended to vilify the President as being perceived by some persons.”
He urged Benue Christians not to relentlessly pray for their leaders at all levels for God’s grace to lead in the right direction.
