Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has stated that al is not well in Nigeria, adding that people need to admit this and come together to work.
Ortom, made the comment on Wednesday, during a condolence visit to the family of the late Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr Obadiah Mailafia.
He said Nigeria is on life support and that anyone who thought the country was doing well was just ‘deceiving’ themselves.
The governor said; “Dr Mailafia was fearless and he stood on the side of the truth. As the Bible says, ‘You should know the truth and the truth shall set you free.’ Our brother stood for truth and justice.
“Anyone saying that all is well in Nigeria is just deceiving himself. Nigeria is on life support. Nigerians have never been divided as it is today.
“Let everyone know that Nigeria is greater than any person. Nigeria is greater than all of us. We must team up and work. We must combine our faith in Nigeria with work in order to salvage our nation from those who seek to destroy it. Refusing to combine our faith with work is akin to pumping a punctured tyre.”
