Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has called on Nigerians to support the incoming administration of President-elect Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Ortom, who spoke on a television show, lamented the security breaches in his state. He was however hopeful that Tinubu’s government would do better in curtailing them.
The governor insisted the situation could have been averted if President Muhammadu Buhari had listened to him, but said he has forgiven Buhari for unprovoked killings across the country, particularly in Benue.
According to him, the country has not had it so good as far as security was concerned under Buhari, but he believes Tinubu’s government will do better.
He said: “We hope the incoming administration will provide succor, help, security for our people, economic development, and peace for our people. We have suffered for eight years. And what we can do is for all of us to support the incoming government.
