Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has revealed that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji is a truthful advocate to bring about a solution to the constant herders crisis in the country.
Ortom said that the former Vice President was not a religious fundamentalist.
He appealed to the electorate in the state to vote like they have never voted before for Atiku who reasoned like the people of the state and all PDP candidates in the forthcoming election.
He said, “ranching is critical to the survival of our state because it remains the best solution to the incessant crises between farmers and herders with monumental loss of human lives and property over the years hence we must vote against those who opposed it.
“Besides Atiku has a long standing relationship with the Benue people who conferred a chieftaincy title on him years back and he also believes in the corporate existence of Nigeria.”
