Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state has said that he can not find any alternative to President Muhammadu Buhari in the race for the Presidential seat of Nigeria in 2019.
He said this during an interview with Vanguard newspaper on Wednesday, when queried on his leading support for the re-election of the President. Despite his age and health condition
“If you recall we in Benue State were the first in the country to initiate prayers for President Muhammadu Buhari when he took ill early in the year. We thank God that he is back on his feet and getting better and stronger by the day. Today he is up and doing, moving from one place to the other and carrying out his official duties. He is truly a gallant retired military man because he is still very strong. Beyond that, he is a man of integrity, discipline and with so much courage to fight the cankerworm called corruption. He is a selfless leader who has instilled discipline in our people. That is the kind of person we need at this particular time of our development and history as a nation. You may have an alternative, but for me, and as far as I am concerned I have not seen an alternative to President Buhari at this our very trying time.”
