Governor Samuel Ortom
Governor Samuel Ortom has stated that Nigeria is on life support and all is not well in the country.
Ortom, who spoke on Wednesday, September 29, while paying a condolence visit to the family members of the late Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Dr Obadiah Mailafia, said anyone who thought the country was doing well was just 'deceiving' themselve.
Praising Mailafia he said;
“Dr Mailafia was fearless and he stood on the side of the truth. As the Bible says, ‘You should know the truth and the truth shall set you free.’ Our brother stood for truth and justice.
“Anyone saying that all is well in Nigeria is just deceiving himself. Nigeria is on life support. Nigerians have never been divided as it is today.
“Let everyone know that Nigeria is greater than any person. Nigeria is greater than all of us. We must team up and work. We must combine our faith in Nigeria with work in order to salvage our nation from those who seek to destroy it. Refusing to combine our faith with work is akin to pumping a punctured tyre.”
