Gov Ortom says he has forgiven President Buhari

The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, on Wednesday, said he has forgiven the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd).

Ortom disclosed this while responding to questions on Arise Television’s ‘The Morning Show’

Ortom had criticised the presidency for blaming his administration for the killings in the state.

He described the attempts by the president to blame his government for the situation as “futile attempts to twist events and history”.

Recall that Spark News Daily reports Buhari had apologised to aggrieved Nigerians, who were not pleased with his administration to forgive him.

The governor, who backed his words with the Christian Holy Book, added that he has forgiven the President.

He said, “When you don’t forgive, it means God too will not forgive. Me, as a student of the Bible and as a born-again Christian, I have forgiven President Muhammadu Buhari.”

Ortom expressed optimism for better performance from the administration of the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, in the state and the nation at large.

“We hope that the incoming administration will provide support, help, security, economic development, and peace for our people.”

“We have suffered for eight years.”

He, however, advised Buhari not to exit Nigeria but stay back to work with the administration of Tinubu to elevate the state and nation from “bottom to top”

“He doesn’t need to go to the Niger Republic. He should stay here (in Nigeria) with us. All of us should work with the incoming administration and by the grace of God, we shall go from bottom to top,” he added.
