GOVERNOR ORTOM’S PRESS INTERACTION


EXCERPTS

ON THE SNAKE ALLEGATION

"... I don't have a snake farm. I started treating snake bites for peasant people over twenty years ago and if I had the power I would have killed all the snakes..."

ON PRESIDENT BUHARI
Benue was the first state to initiate a prayer for Mr Presidents health. we saw him spoke with him and he asked me about the security situation in the state. As soon as he gets a nod from his Doctors he will resume. We told him not to be in a hurry as the Acting President is doing well. Mr President is eager to come back.

ON RESTRUCTURING
Nigerians have elected representatives at NASS, which cut across all ethnicity and interests. This call should not come from people with ulterior motives and a quest to seek popularity. Most of them don't even understand what restructuring is. It is my opinion that NASS should discuss it and subject it to public hearings to enable Nigerians make their inputs.

ON 2019
I have told my supporters not to insult or beat any one for me. I have a tenure that is running. I am concentrated on serving the people of Benue with this mandate that is still running. I usually tell people that when it was with pepper too I ate, is it now that it is with kyegh Sha shwa ( KSS) that I won't?. But my priority is to serve the people of Benue now. 2019 will settle itself.

ON THE OPEN GRAZING PROHIBITION LAW
Globally ranching is the universe best practices to rear animals in the 21st century. I have challenged anyone with a superior solution other than ranching but no one has been able to bring up any. Any one who intends to rear cattles in the state must resort to ranching and their is no going back. This law is to protect both farmers and herders. There are stiff penalties for those who rustle cattles too. Mr President did not query the signing into law of the open grazing prohibition law. Even Miyetti Allah agreed that ranching Is the best but complained about the timing. No one is targeting the Fulani people this law is for all animals including pigs and goats etc which the Fulani people don't rear.
