Re­struc­tur­ing ag­i­ta­tors not co­or­di­nated — Or­tom

Daily Trust - - ASO CHRONICLE - From Hope Abah, Makurdi

Gov­er­nor Sa­muel Or­tom of Benue State said yes­ter­day that those ag­i­tat­ing for re­struc­tur­ing of the coun­try do not even know what they are talk­ing about.

Or­tom made the re­mark in Makurdi while an­swer­ing ques­tions from news­men.

He said the ag­i­ta­tors were all speak­ing in dif­fer­ent tones, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to un­der­stand what ex­actly they wanted.

Or­tom said that was why lead­ers of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) came out to say they did not know what the cit­i­zens re­ally wanted.

“Those talk­ing about re­struc­tur­ing don’t even know what they are talk­ing about. There is no co­or­di­nated ap­proach to it and that was why my party came up to say they don’t un­der­stand what the peo­ple are talk­ing about,” he said.

The gov­er­nor, there­fore, called for cau­tion over the var­i­ous shades of opin­ion, adding that Nige­ri­ans should al­low their elected rep­re­sen­ta­tives at the Na­tional As­sem­bly do the job they were elected to do for the bet­ter­ment of the coun­try.
