    Eid-el-Kabir: Pray for divine intervention says Ortom 

    Published By:

    Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has urged all Muslims to pray for divine intervention to end the difficulties facing the country, in his message to the year’s Edi-el-Kabir celebration.

    In the statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Nathaniel Ikyur, he said, “The successful invasion of the Kuje Prison, right in the heart of the nation’s capital, Abuja by terrorists during which scores of inmates escaped unarguably vindicates my clarion calls on the federal government to wake up to its responsibilities and address the security threats gradually tearing the nation apart.

    They have in more than equal proportion ignored my calls. As it is right now, we are all endangered in this country and there is no hiding place for anyone. Everywhere, everyone is under attack. If the President’s convoy can be easily attacked by terrorists just the way l was attacked on my farm, then nowhere, no one is safe.”

    Governor Ortom said “Let me repeat myself. We can overcome these security challenges if the President and his cabinet are honest enough to stand up and do the right thing for this nation. If the President decides today to end this insurgency, Nigeria will be free.

    “But as it is right now, there’s no assurance that he is ready. Those he has placed in charge of the security architecture of this country are not sincere to him and Nigerians.

    “I want to therefore restate my call for the convocation of a national security summit where all stakeholders will be present to brainstorm and find lasting solutions to this insurgency tearing our nation apart. We cannot continue to live in perpetual fear in our fatherland,” he added.
