You’ve violated the oath of office, left Nigerians digging their graves – Ortom attacks Buhari

Ortom and Buhari

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has slammed President Muhammadu Buhari, stating that he violated the oath of office he took in 2015 and left Nigerians digging their graves due to insecurity in the country.

Ortom stated this on Monday at the new banquet hall of the government house, Makurdi, Benue State capital.

The governor stated this while reacting to the video of terrorists flogging Kaduna-bound train attack victims and their threat to kidnap the President and the Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai.

He added that there was no government in the country and those surrounding President Buhari were criminals.

He said, “Things are getting worse in Nigeria. You know I said this before I travelled out that, very soon, with the manner bandits are operating without proactive steps from the federal government, they will soon enter the Aso Rock.

“You have seen happenings in the country; the Kuje prison break and the threat to kidnap the president, God forbid, but this is what I saw long time ago.

“Those people in Afghanistan, who are bandits and Fulanis, are the ones (wreaking havoc). They are being sponsored. I feel pains that this is happening in my generation. There is no government in Nigeria today. Those who are surrounding the president are criminals.

“Mr president, if you are listening to me, I want to say that you are not doing well, you have violated the oath of office you took, Nigerians are in pains,  they are suffering, the socio economic lives of the people have gone down the abyss.

“You have left us digging out graves, we need a true change, not the change from top to bottom you promised us in 2015.”
