We’ll Hold FG Responsible If Anything Happens to Governor Ortom – SouthEast Group (Updated: 12 months ago)


The federal government has been warned of the consequences should anything happen to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state.

The warning was given by the Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL.

The group said if anything happens to Ortom, it will hold the federal government responsible.

 

The group gave the warning via a statement issued on Thursday in Owerri, the Imo State capital by its President, Goodluck Ibem.

 

COSEYL alleged that the governor had raised the alarm over threats to his life following his stand on open grazing in the South East and other parts of the country.

 

The statement reads, “The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, the apex socio-political front for all youthful organisations in the Southeast geopolitical zone of Nigeria is aware of the latest concern and alarm sounded by Governor Ortom of Benue State wherein the governor alleged that assassins from Sudan had been hired to eliminate him.

 

“We wish to sound the warning to the federal government of the day with whom Ortom has been having a war of words that no harm should, by any means, come to the governor.”

 

The group which vowed to support Ortom and his position regarding the open grazing matter said the Fulani crisis has taken the lives of Nigerians stressing that it has led to food and other challenges across the country.

 

According to COESYL, any attack on Governor Ortom “is not just an attack on the opposition or a dissenting voice but one against us and our democracy, since as a Coalition, we share the same opinion on grazing with the governor. We will not take this, not even from any president or presidency,”.
