Those wishing Buhari dead should confront God - Ortom | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f

Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue state, has advised those wishing death on President Muhammadu Buhari to “go and confront God who made it possible for him to become the president at this time”.

Addressing state house correspondents after a visit to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo late Monday, Ortom wished Buhari good health and safe return back home.

He also prayed that God should help the current administration overcome the challenges which he blamed on “bad leadership” by the past government.

“Those that are wishing Mr. President dead should go and confront God who brought Mr President to be president of Nigeria,” he said.

“It was not his making. When that time came, God made it possible, just like some of us.

“It was God that made it possible for us to be here and nobody can remove us until the time that God’s programme for Nigeria is completed and God decides what to do next.”

He appealed to Nigerians to shun violence and acts capable of plunging the country into crisis.

Ortom also counselled those in position of authorities not to abuse power.

“Nigeria is the only country we have. Definitely, we don’t want to be like Syria and other countries that have got entangled in various calamities,” he said.

“I want to implore those who are bestowed with leadership, especially those who have taken oath of office, to obey the laws of the land, to protect the laws of the land and to live by the oath of office they have taken instead of playing politics of the extreme and causing things that can bring major disaster to our country.”

  2. Jesus laid his life for us,why dont you Ortom lay yours in replacement for Mr President,If you care so much.Pretenders

  3. Fulani butcher your people and you are busy being a sycophant

  4. Any leader who his subjects want dead should go and think again. We are still waiting for the President's official reaction to more than 800 people killed in S. Kaduna. Does a father keep quiet when his children are killing one another? Those affected, should they be wishing him well? Fulani herdsmen killing people and he keeps mum. Should the relations of those killed be praying for him? The reactions are natural. Nobody said such things when Yaradua was sick. One or two people shot in a school in US and the President reacts. Hundreds killed in Nigeria, the President behaves as if it was fairy tell. What do you want the victims to wish him? Good health? The President should think again. I'm sure Ortom has not yet lost a close relation to herdsmen. When and if he does we shall invite him again to make comments.
