Samuel Ortom, the governor of Benue State, has claimed that if given the chance, the Igbo people can lead Nigeria. He claimed that the Igbos are tolerant and can live anywhere in the nation without encountering problems with the local population.
When the Igbo PDP Forum paid Governor Ortom a visit in Makurdi, the capital of Benue State, on Wednesday, the governor made this statement. Speaking to the delegation, the governor also described the Igbos as peaceful people.
In the Daily Post report, he claimed that “The Igbo are accommodating and hardworking.” They want me to stay because, in contrast to the people who are killing my people, they can live in harmony with people of other races.
Along with bemoaning the gruesome murder of his people by violent and armed herdsmen, Governor Ortom promised not to remain silent in spite of such crimes perpetrated against his people.
Governor Ortom has been vociferous in recent years about the herdsmen attacking his people and has urged the authorities to intervene.
