Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue state, says the administration of the All Progressives Congress (APC) is worse than the worst military government that Nigeria has ever had.
Ortom spoke in Makurdi on Monday while fielding questions from journalists after his return from the national convention of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The governor said the current administration has been feeding Nigerians with lies and failed promises.
He said the APC-led administration has failed in all areas and urged Nigerians to join the PDP to retake power from the ruling party.
“We are determined to take over leadership of this country, come 2023 because of the failure of the APC-led government; they are being deceitful and not able to secure our land,” he said.
“They have succeeded in destroying our economy, our security, our social life and everything you can think of in this country.
“I have been privileged to read the history of Nigeria and those that have been destroying us including the military.
“Usually, we say that the worst democratic government is better than the best military government. That is what we say but in the case of the APC-led government, I want to say that the worst military government we have had in Nigeria is better than this particular government led by APC.
“I have never seen anything like this; people who don’t want you to tell them the truth or advise them; they try to twist things and tell the world that you are against them. Is it not democracy we are practising?
“We urge Nigerians to team up with us (PDP) to dismantle this current APC government that have record of the worst corruption in our nation. They have destroyed everything.”
