Re: Go and fix the rot in Benue State – Gov. Wike blasts Ortom


It has come to attention of the APC Youth League Rivers Coordinate that the governor of Rivers State Barr Nyesom Wike has made some unguarded statement against the governor of Benue state Samuel Ortom asking him to go fix the rot in his state.


Firstly, I wonder how a man that has plundered our dear state into huge debt in excess of 150 Billion naira will accuse another governor of borrowing excessively. He has mortgaged our IGR, and other financial sources for his personal interest.

Secondly he also accused Gov Samuel's Benue state of been insecure ; coming from a man who two weeks ago agreed that Rivers State is very unsafe hence the drop in IGR, is quite alarming.

Finally, after empowering young men to kill well over 200 persons during the last general election, and  organizing an "eye service " amnesty program just to camouflage, Gov Wike should face the insecurity in his state and think of how to pay teachers over 12months salary been owed by his administration.‎

We wish to call on the good people of Benue State never to be distracted by the antics of Gov Wike against the the focus leadership of Gov Ortom in taking the food basket of the nation to its great height, ‎at a time the APC led federal government is passionate about diversifying the economy through agriculture.
