Elder Statesman and former Minister of Power and Steel during the second republic, Paul Unongo, has urged people of the state as well as the Federal Government not to despise Governor Samuel Ortom’s words of caution over the security situation in the country.

Unongo, who spoke at a stakeholders meeting held in Government House in Makurdi on Monday, dismissed the notion that the Ortom was engaging President Muhammadu Buhari, for political leverage.

The former chairman, Northern Elders’ Forum said the governor was only doing what every reasonable man would do in the circumstance.

MoneyCentral had reported how the governor and the presidency engaged in a war of words over the security and grazing routes policy of the Federal Government.

Unongo said, “I will advise those who are painting the picture that Ortom is fighting a personal or political war with the President to desist forthwith.

“Ortom is only doing what every man with the thoughts of his people in mind will do. The best thing is for Mr President to listen to Ortom without bias. Those who are trying to paint Ortom badly before the president are really doing him more damage.”

Also, Senator Orke Jev stated, “In the fullness of time, the benefits of the moment will pass away and we will hand over such people to posterity.”
