Ortom visits Buhari, govs say 2023 polls under threat

The Benue State Governor, Mr Samuel Ortom, on Tuesday visited the President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, three days after he was attacked by herdsmen.

At the end of the meeting held behind closed doors, the governor told State House correspondents that with the current level of insecurity in the country, nobody would think of 2023 elections.

He appealed to Nigerians not to allow their aspirations for the 2023 elections to jeopardise the unity and progress of the nation.

The governor also faulted those who hold the belief that he could have stage-managed the attack on his convoy. He wondered the benefit he would derive in raising a false alarm.

The governor disclosed that Buhari accepted the suggestions he made on the security situation in the state.
