Ortom is not someone I take very seriously, he is using the Federal Government as a punching bag to distract attention from his failures - El-Rufai

Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna state has lashed out at Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state who he described as a failure. 

 

Speaking after a video of Ortom addressing protesters after some killings in Benue State was played during a webinar organised by the Africa Leadership Group, El-Rufai stated that the Benue state Governor is not someone he takes seriously. 

 

He further claimed that Ortom attacks the federal government to hide his failure. El-Rufai said; 

 

“I did not hear what Governor Ortom said (in the video) but I know him and he is not somebody I take very seriously, frankly. He has other issues of governance that he is using the Federal Government as a punching bag to distract attention from his failures.

“Go and find out how many months’ salaries are being owed teachers and public servants in Benue State then you can understand a lot of what Ortom is doing.”
