Benue State Governor,  Dr Samuel Ortom on Thursday said Nigerians people are in serious pains,
SWIndependentnews.com.ng reports that Governor Samuel Ortoms said the Governors of the Peoples Democratic Party  (PDP) controlled states are performing well by  providing good gevernance in their various States despite the security and economic challenges  facing the country.
Governor Ortom stated this in his speech at the commissioning ceremony of the 65km Moniya – Ijaiye – Ojutaye – Iseyin Road reconstructed by the Oyo State Governor,  Engr Seyi Makinde.
He said, the they will say Samuel Ortom is talking too much, but to give me justice, give my people justice, give my people fairness, and ensure equity, I promise you that I will never say anything again.
“APC government is in deficit, government is all about providing security of lives and properties for it’s citizens, government is about providing infrastructure like the one we’re commissioning here today, I call on the Federal government and APC to rise up and give good leadership for our people because our people are in pains, from the North East, to NorthWest, to North Central, South – South, South West, East everywhere is facing challenge and without security there can be no meaningful development
the PDP remained committed to the unity of the country  calliing   on the Federal  Government to rise to the challenges of insecurity in the country by providing the required  leadership adding  that without security, there can be no development, except in PDP control states.
“Let us not lose faith in the Nigeria  project,  let us work together to summout the challenges we are face with today ” , he said
He said it  is clear that the All Progressives Congress led government  lacked the capability to govern and therefore called on the PDP Governors to work hard to change the APC led government in 2023.
“APC do not have the capacity to deliver good governance, in 2015 the mantle of leadership was given to the APC but from all indications to every Nigerians they failed, go and check the economic nature of our country then, how much was the rate of a dollar to naira then, what was the nature of our security before and now.
“We now have security problem all over the country, not even in  one or two states but all over the country, and without adequate security no meaningful developments can be done except in PDP control states, let us work hard and also continue to pray and as you are praying, either you are christains or muslim let us also apply work, because all faith without works is dead, let us work hard so that come 2023 by the Grace of God we shall change the change. Ortom said.
Earlier in his address , Oyo State Governor, Engr. Seyi Makinde said the project is one of the  projects that will play a major role in the  engineering a modern Oyo State  where the prosperity of the people through economic integration will serve  as the fulcrum of our decisions.
He appreciated  appreciated  Governor, Samuel Ortom of Benue State for honoring his invitation  and as well commiserated with the Benue State Governor  over the death his  Senior Special Assistant on Security, Christopher Dega who was murdered few days ago
According to him the 65km Moniya-Ijaiye-Iseyin Road had hitherto been in a deplorable state for several years and serves as the link between Ibadan and Oke-Ogun, Oyo State’s food basket.
 “This road also hosts the once moribund Pacesetter Quarry and Asphalt Plant; not only have we resuscitated the plant, but it is already producing asphalt that we use in the building of our roads here in Oyo State. ” Makinde said.
