Samuel Ortom, the governor of Benue state on Saturday has made a clarion call on President Muhammadu Buhari to take as an emergency and make a national summit that would involve all Nigerians with the opportunity to speak their mind on the issues affecting the insecurity of the country and give possible solutions.
The Benue state governor said, “such a forum would serve as an interim measure to put an end to the wave of threats and counter-threats emanating from different sections of the country.”
He said this during a warm visit from the President of Evangelical Church Winning All, ECWA, Reverend Stephen Panya Baba, at Government House, Makurdi, appeal to the security agencies not to ignore those beating drums of war.
“President Muhammadu Buhari should convoke a National Dialogue Forum where Nigerians would frankly speak on issues affecting the country, particularly insecurity and proffer solutions”, he said.
It grew at the recent order from the Miyetti ‘Allah’s Kautal Hore telling its members to defend themselves against ethnic militia attacks.
Ortom said, “the order was capable of causing unimaginable violence, stressing that it was unfair that the group would continue to make statements capable of setting the nation on fire yet officials of the group were not invited for questioning.”
In response, Reverend Panya Baba praised Governor Ortom, for standing by his people despite the security and political storm.
He said it is a sign that the governor loves his people as a great leader.
