He further has the same opinion with the Bishop that Christians across the country are targets of elimination and hundreds beget already fallen to the sword of jihadist supremacists.

Governor Ortom states that Kukah is now not responsible for the ranking of Nigeria because the eighth least serene country in Africa and the rating of killer herdsmen because the 4th deadliest terror neighborhood within the area by the International Terrorism Index.

He expects the Presidency to rather be disquieted that Nigeria is ranked because the most terrorised nation in Africa with a point out of over 2,000 deaths per year due to the terrorism.

He emphasizes that the combative map the Presidency has adopted in keen citizens on concerns will now not resolve the complications confronting the country.

Governor Ortom says Bishop Kukah is now not the first Nigerian to address a international target audience on the safety exclaim within the country.

He says the President might well now not be amassing proceeds from injurious deals below his administration and might well even now not endure in mind that such shady deals exist, but some of his aides are deeply thinking injurious practices and are denying Nigerians of the providers and products and projects supposed to alleviate poverty and starvation within the land.

Governor Ortom maintains that the President might well now not endure in mind that Nigerians are facing harsh financial circumstances and heaps are being killed by bandits, herdsmen and varied terrorists as a consequence of one of the persons saddled with the responsibility of telling him the reality beget refused to enact so.

He urges the Presidency to hear to the voices of motive and resist the temptation to whip into silence folk that finally enjoy the country and are offering alternatives to its challenges.
