The Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has been advised to focus on addressing the numerous problems he has created in his state and leave his Benue counterpart, Samuel Ortom, to lead Benue in peace.
This follows a recent statement credited to the Kaduna State Governor in which he supposedly accused Governor Ortom of using the insecurity in his state to attack the Federal Government in order to cover up what he termed as the Benue State Governor’s failure.
A statement by the Benue Governor’s Chief Press, Terver Akase, refuting this claim insisted that a man who has failed in several aspects as Governor of Kaduna has no moral justification to accuse another Governor.
He saw El-Rufai’s attack as merely a way to make him look good before the Presidency as he has apparently fallen out of favour at the Villa and wants to use Governor Ortom as a launchpad back to reckoning.
Akase maintained that the Kaduna State Governor is one of the real enemies of this country who do not hide their divisive tendencies by elevating nepotism and ethnicity above the good values that have held Nigeria together over the decades.
He further described El-Rufai as a sycophant, ethnic champion, and religious bigot who hates anyone who does not share the same faith with him and equally identified him as the very few persons who have misled President Muhammadu Buhari.
Akase questioned his handling of his own problems in Kaduna noting that he has insulted almost every prominent Nigerian including the late President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua and former President Olusegun Obasanjo; a man who is his former boss and one who brought him to limelight.
“Is Governor Ortom responsible for El-Rufai’s inability to ensure peace in Kaduna State where bandits have taken over some communities while kidnappings and killings occur on daily basis?
“El-Rufai admitted to paying Fulani herdsmen whom he invited from other West African countries in the name of stopping attacks in Southern Kaduna. Since he made the confessional statement, attacks on the people of Southern Kaduna have escalated.
“This is why he wants men of good conscience like Governor Ortom to be silent to pave way for the conquest and expansion agenda to succeed,” the statement read in part.
He noted that only two days ago, the people of Benue State met at a stakeholders meeting attended across party lines with leaders of All Progressives Congress, APC, also present and unanimously passed a vote of confidence on Governor Ortom in recognition of his performance.
He, therefore, urged El-Rufai and his conspirators to note that Benue State will not repeal the Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law, no matter the amount of blackmail, hatred, and threats they wage against Governor Ortom.
