Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has backed the senate move to serve President Muhammadu Buhari an impeachment notice amid the incessant insecurity challenges plaguing the country.
Governor Ortom of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) lauded the national assembly for issuing a six-weeks notice to the president.
He gave his support at his Abuja lodge on Friday, July 29 while receiving delegates of the Senate minority leader, Senator Philip Aduda.
While speaking with the delegates, Governor Ortom stated that he admired their courage and patriotic move while also giving kudos to Senators from the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) who joined in supporting the course of President Buhari’s impeachment.
He described the President Buhari’s administration as one that has performed below par and failed in salvaging the challenges in security, economy and a host of others.
Meanwhile, Senator Aduda who led the team of delegates told Governor Ortom that it was expedient that they briefed him of the development as one of the power brokers of the PDP. Aduda told the governor that although the impeachment move was initiated by the Senate, the House of Representatives as well as a good number of the APC members had also joined.
Senator Orker Jev and Hon. Samson Okwu among others was also present at the visit.
