Benue State Governor Lazy, Incompetent -Governor Wike calls for state of emergency

Governor Nyesom Wike as lambasted the Governor of Benue State Samuel Ortom for his poor handling of the situation in his state. According to him “You can’t have a governor watching helplessly as his people are being killed. What kind of governor is that.

 “He has displayed sheer laziness and incapacity in the whole issue, and this is quite unfortunate.”Wike said

He stated that the declaration of a state of emergency in Benue had become necessary because the governor, Samuel Ortom, had shown “ineptitude and lack of capacity to handle the situation.

His call is coming barely five days after the attacks in Zaki Biam, which led to the death of morethan fifty people.

While asserting that governors were not fully in charge of security in states, despite being called chief security officers (CSOs), Wike, however, said governors were supposed to have strategies, working with security agencies, on how to combat crime.

“No excuse is acceptable for the high number of deaths in Benue”, he added.
