Ortom blamed the woes of the country on the Nigerian leaders including himself saying nothing good was happening in the economic and political aspect of the country.
The outspoken Governor made this known while speaking to journalists on Friday, moments after the Church service held at the Chapel of Grace, Government House, Makurdi, in commemoration of Nigeria’s 61st Independence Day.
Ortom said, “There is nothing to celebrate, that’s why here in Benue state, we choose to celebrate God for giving us life. We cannot celebrate anything; is it the economy close to N600 per dollar?. Is it what?
“What are we celebrating as a people? We leaders have failed. We leaders have failed this country. Sycophants, mediocres are the ones ruling. They have taken over. Corruption has taken over this country and in every sphere of life, nothing is happening.
“But, we need to celebrate God for keeping us alive, maybe tomorrow we can have a better Nigeria. But for now, I won’t deceive you, there is nothing to celebrate.”
