The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has disclosed why he would fight and work against the presidential ambition of Bola Tinubu, the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Ortom stated that he would urge his people to vote against Tinubu for insisting on continuing with the policies of President Muhammadu Buhari if elected as Nigeria’s next president.
It was last week that the former Lagos State governor and APC National Leader informed Buhari of his intentions to run for the Presidency in 2023, saying he would continue with the policies of Buhari’s administration if elected as president.
The governor, who spoke on Thursday in Makurdi, the State capital, while assenting to the amended Open Grazing Prohibition and Ranches Establishment Law 2017, pointed out that Buhari’s policies and programmes were bad and warned that the presidential aspirant would fail in his ambition if he opts to pursue Buhari’s policies.
According to Ortom: “I heard about one of the presidential aspirants who said he would continue from Buhari’s good legacies. I want to tell him that if nobody has told him, me I want to tell him that Buhari’s policies and programmes are not good.
“And anybody who is saying that some of us, in our own little way, we will fight him and tell our people to vote against him. So, he has failed ab initio.”
