Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has stated that the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari has failed to establish any project in the state.

In a statement on Monday by his media aide, Tahav Agerzua, said this was the reason ‘the majority’ of Benue residents were opposed to the re-election bid of Buhari.

Ortom said: “We have lived with the Fulani people for ages; we have nothing against them. Even the Fulani people know that we have nothing against them.

“We also voted for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015, but while Shagari and Yar’Adua reciprocated the support they received by patronising Benue people through federal appointments and projects, President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC have failed to register any positive federal presence in the state.

“But from my findings, a majority of Benue residents are opposed to the re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari and the APC, because they have failed to register any positive federal presence in the state.

“Many people also feel that the APC-led Federal Government has failed to secure lives and property.”
