Gov. Ortom Dismiss Reports Linking Him To Uncomplimentary Remarks Against The Church

We wish to urge the good people of Benue State to ignore the statement being circulated on social media by members of the opposition in the state quoting Governor Samuel Ortom as making uncomplimentary remarks about one of the biggest churches in the land.

We had alerted the public to watch out for more sponsored campaigns from the opposition to smear Governor Ortom. The statement in question is part of that grand design by failed politicians who, after being rejected by the people in the last general election, have vowed to make Benue ungovernable.

As a leader who came in God's name and was popularly elected by the people, Governor Ortom knows the role the church played in his emergence as Governor of the state and he has remained in constant touch with all Christian denominations. He therefore couldn't have turned round to make the said remarks against any denomination of the church.

What the latest attempt by the opposition to malign the Governor implies is a gradual but sure drift into the shameful abyss of hate scripts and comments against the person and office of the Governor.

It is another indication that the Benue opposition are clearly bereft of ideas and have resorted to desperate attempts to set Governor Ortom up against the church which God used to give him victory in 2015. This is another poorly tailored plan by the opposition ahead of the 2019 elections. The plot has already failed like many others before it.

We challenge those circulating the "quote" to publish the evidence of where and when the Governor made the statement.

Governor Ortom remains focused on the task of leading the state out of the economic debris the previous administration caused and he won't be distracted by hate comments from the falsehood manufacturing factories of the opposition.
