Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has said he will not stop criticising President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration until killings stop in the state.

This comes as Buhari asked Ortom to acknowledge his administration’s capital projects in his state.

The President on Thursday told Ortom that rather than cast only aspersions, he should speak about the good deeds of the present government, whenever he (Ortom) engages the media to criticise the APC-led administration.


According to the governor, he only criticises Buhari for not being able to end the killings in the state and Nigeria.

He said as long as the people of Benue are being killed by suspected Fulani herders and militias amid the federal government’s failure to stop it, “I will not stop criticising until the killings stop”.

“Why has the Buhari-led Federal Government not disarmed Fulani herdsmen who bear sophisticated weapons and kill innocent people but have continued to deny lawful state security agencies the right to acquire arms to protect lives and property?
