Nigeria Is On Drip, Says Gov Ortom

By Joel Ajayi

Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has revealed that Nigeria is on drip with its chances of survival slim.

The governor posited that except all Nigerians arise and liberate themselves, the country would remain at the bottom.

Governor Ortom, who stated this yesterday during a television programme, called on Nigerians to rise up and rescue Nigeria irrespective of party affiliations.

According to him, Nigeria is stagnant, Nigeria is on drip.

“Like the name of your TV, Arise, I am calling on all Nigeria to arise and liberate ourselves from these challenges.

“One man cannot solve the problems of this country, we need to come together, look at the economy, social life, we are at the bottom, like President Muhammadu Buhari promised us that he will take us from top to bottom, now we are at the bottom, we need to come together to take ourselves from bottom to top.

“It is not about political party, it is about all of us, we need to rescue Nigeria irrespective of party affiliations, one man cannot solve this problem.

“The country is dwindling, we are sinking, the issue now is that Nigerians need to arise to bring this country back on track. We can’t continue this way and people should stop deceiving themselves.

“Many people are telling President Buhari that all is well with Nigerians, all is not well; I am a grassroots man; I was a local government chairman to party member to federal and back to the state as a governor. All is not well; we are suffering; there is a problem.

“And this goes beyond partisan politics, we must forget about APC, PDP, we must look at what we can do to help this country, Nigeria is stagnant, Nigeria is on drip and the chance of surviving is slim except we all come together to rescue the situation.

“In 2015, the dollar was less than N200, today it is over N600, fuel was N87 now is N300, gas is on the high side, food is expensive, queues in every filling station, some people can’t boast of three square meals, some go on zero square meal because they have nothing, you go to the farm bandits will attack you and this government is not well informed”, he noted.
