Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Thursday said any Nigerian opposed to the Southern Governors’ decision banning open grazing of cattle has a hidden agenda.
Ortom made the remark at Holy Ghost Parish Hall in Makurdi while delivering his speech on the occasion of ‘Media Week and Communications Day 2021’, organised by the Catholic Diocese of Makurdi.
The governor said that his southern counterparts had chosen the right path to address insecurity.
He maintained that Nigeria remains a great country with huge potentials and should, ordinarily, have no business with poverty if only there were guaranteed security for lives and property and the people are allowed to remain stable in their localities.
Ortom expressed appreciation to the Church and Muslims in Benue state as well as residents for being supportive of his administration just as he acknowledged the good reportage of government policies and programmes by the Directorate of Social Communication, Catholic Diocese of Makurdi.
