Reacting on News Central TV, “when there are security challenges in a state or a nation, it is not about lumping the blame on an ethnic group. He is profiling the entire Fulani of being responsible for the breakdown of law and order in Benue.

In a state where the Governor cannot pay salaries, gratuities, pension as at when due, its healthcare is in shambles, education is in shambles and all these things are directly or indirectly tangentially related to security. He cannot transfer his degree of failure and use it to profile ethnic groups.”

“There are six other groups outside the Tivs that are in Benue State and these six other groups, Ortom cannot claim to be speaking for them.

For instance, he cannot claim to be speaking for the idomas and the igalas but he may partially claim to be speaking for the Tivs.”
