The Rivers State Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Felix Obuah, has called on the Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom to throw in the towel, if he cannot cope with the task of leading the state.
He lamented that the embattled governor has failed to curtail the activities of herdsmen, adding that the state is also owning 10 month salaries to civil servants.
He berated Ortom for failing to take advantage of an earlier call on him by the PDP to visit the Rivers State for some tutorials on leadership and development strategies under Governor Nyesom Wike.
Obuah allegedly that 15 local government areas of Benue State out of the 23 councils have been overrun by the Fulani herdsmen, leaving governor Ortom helpless.
He said: “Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue is owing over nine months salaries to civil servants, 10 months salaries to local government employees and 12 months of pension arrears to pensioners.”
