Aso Rock Is Cesspool Of Corruption- Ortom ….Says I Have Forgiven Buhari
Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has described the Aso Rock Villa as Cesspool of Corruption.
Ortom, who featured on Arise News current affairs programme, The Morning Show, monitored in lagos on Wednesday said he knew how much was deployed from the Villa to ensure that he didn’t win the senatorial election.
He, however, maintained that he has forgiven President Muhammadu Buhari and that he (Buhari) needs not to run to Niger Republic for cover.
Ortom said the insecurity ravaging Nigeria would have been reduced drastically if the President had listened to his advice.
He explained that he enjoyed good relationships with President Buhari initially before overzealous aides put wedge between them.
He said; ” I have forgiven President Buhari, I have no ill feelings towards him. So, he needs not run to Niger Republic for cover after handing over.
” For instance, when people talk about Corruption, I laugh. The Villa is the home of corruption. I know how much was deployed to ensure that I lost the Senate seat. I won a state election in 2015 and 2019 comprising 23 localgovernments. Now, I lost in just 7 local governments because they say Ortom must lose at all cost. I have forgiven everyone and moved on.”
