Samuel Ortom the Governor of Benue State has told Atiku Abubakar, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP presidential candidate, to go forget about his presidential aspiration support from him that he will not support owing to continuous killings of people in Benue State.
The Benue Governor Who blew hot stated this on Sunday night when he hosted the party’s G-5 Governors comprising the Rivers Governor Nyesom Wike, Abuja Governor Okezie Ikpeazu, Oyo Governor Seyi Makinde and Enugu Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi in the Government House, Makurdi Benue State Capital.
Ortom decried the killing of 18 people in his LG last week.
According to him: “To hell with Atiku and anyone supporting him. They should go and tell him. You want me to be a slave for a Fulani. It’s better I die. Anybody supporting Atiku is an enemy of Benue.
“My people are being killed and you want me to be quiet. My tenure ends in May and you can do whatever you want if you think you have the powers. I have written my will. When I gave it to my wife, she cried all night. If I die at 62, many of my mates have gone a long time ago and If I die today, I’m a fulfilled person but let it be recorded that I died resisting the invasion and killing of my people.
“I will never support a Fulani man to become president. If there is another person who is ready to work with me and ensure the security of my people, I will work with him.”
