    This is commendable. I salute your sense of concern. Gov. Samuel Ortom is a coward, he is lilly-livered and so afraid of PMB that he cannot speak out for the interest of his people. It took Govs. Ayo Fayse and Nyesome Wike for him to begin to mutter some “courageous” words. He eventually enacted the anti-grazing bill, but lacks the lever to implement it.

    Looking forward to 2019 and first to carry the banner to Benue. While APC and PMB are still gazing at the stars over mama Taraba.
