More Confusion Rocks PDP As Two Governors Fight Dirty


Bauchi Governor is part and parcel of the terrorist Fulani, Ortom alleges

WeetalknaijaBlog can authoritavely report that all is not well with the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) as two governors, over the weekend engaged in verbal war over Fulani Herdsmen.

Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom on Monday described Bauchi State governor, Bala Mohammed, as a terrorist.

Ortom was reacting to comments credited to his Bauchi counterpart Governor Bala Muhammed who earlier berated him for being an arrow head in excerbating the bad media framings, criminalizing the Fulani tribe in Nigeria.
Muhammed spoke at the Press week organised by the Bauchi state Correspondents’ Chapel, Monday, in Bauchi.

In a swift reaction Ortom said,
“I am beginning to think that my brother, the governor of Bauchi State is part of the terrorist Fulani organisation that is terrorising this country,” Ortom said while addressing journalists in Makurdi, Benue State capital.
“Why do I say this? This is the same governor who took the oath of office to protect the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. This constitution does not leave room for allowing foreign herdsmen to come in without valid papers,” he added.

He also referred to the assertion by Mohammed that herders should carry AK-47 to defend themselves as being “unconstitutional.”
“His recent outburst that Fulani herdsmen are justified for carrying AK-47 to protect themselves. I don’t know where the constitution of this country allows that,” he said.
Ortom, therefore, called Mohammed to render an unreserved apology to Nigerians and learn from the provisions of the constitution that, land both territorial, forest, and aquatic, are vested on the governor of a state who holds them in trust.
Mohammed’s comment on armed herdsmen earned him some baching from his counterparts and Nigerians alike, increasing calls for the prohibition of open grazing.

Mohammed later defended his comment about armed herders, explaining that he used AK-47 as a figure of speech for protection.
