Governor Ortom rolls out new plan for politicians to solve Nigeria's problems
The governor of Benue state had earlier called on all political leaders to ensure they work together with a view of salvaging Nigeria from the current challenges facing it.
Speaking shortly after he received the highest honours in the state, the 'Grand Service Star of Rivers State GSSRS, in Port Harcourt on Saturday, December 3, Ortom charged Nigerians to rise above parochial considerations and work together for the progress of the country.
A statement by Ortom's chief press secretary, Nathaniel Ikyur, which was seen by Legit.ng said that at this particular time in the history of Nigeria when the country is being challenged economically, socially, politically and security-wise, all that was required was for the people to demonstrate patriotism to salvage the country.
