Ortom threatens Oshiomhole with N10billion libel suit

ortom and oshiomoleconductorortomGovernor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has threatened a legal action against the national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams for what he described as defamation of character.

The governor, through his counsel, Samuel Irabor, noted that Oshiomhole had during his press conference on July 27 defamed his character, and demanded for apologies through an advertorial in 10 national dailies and electronic media.

Failure to do this, the governor said he would proceed to the court to claim N10billion for defamation.

According to statement by his counsel: “A letter of retraction/apology must be simultaneously published in 10 national dailies circulating  in Benue State, as well as a paid advertorial to the same  effect on the prime beats of the NRA, AIT, Channels, TVC, ITV (Benin), Radio Nigeria, Radio Benue and Harvest FM, Makurdi.

“10 billion Naira only for the client as punitive, general exemplary and aggravated damages.”

The governor alleged that the APC chairman had  made wild allegations against   his administration on  security votes, non payment of salaries and the alleged  Benue Christian complicity in the recent killings in the state.

“It boggles the mind to begin the process of thinking that led to your unconscionable statement that ‘Benue Christians” are responsible for the mass killings and sustainable genocide there own people,” Ortom stated.

The governor’s counsel said that since his client exercised his political association by moving to a party that guaranteed his kinsmen were not made an extinct race, Oshiomhole  had  embarked on campaign of hatred and propaganda against his person and personality.

He, however, called on the national chairman to, within seven days of receipt of the letter, meet all the demands or face legal action.

    when we talk about legacy people with low understanding will brag about leadership of Nigeria, how they’ve been ruling there minority counterparts, Hausa/Fulani rulled Nigeria but we can’t boast of 24 hrs electricity as a country, or any infrastructure, no good road with rood signs, no Justice ,no security, no health care ,no unity nor love . .do you know why South Africans keep celebrating Nelson Mandela’s birthday every year since he passed away…no rich man or woman in South Africa can be celebrate the way they did to Mandela. Mandela was jailed for over 27 years for freedom of South Africa ..he carried the problems and threats of his country men as there leader,.. he put South Africa first.. that is kind of leaders and legacy we want in Nigeria not people coming to brag about being majority of the country and have been ruling without any achievement. the basic and normal facilities the country needed, can’t be achieved We need a leader not a ruler Hausa /Fulani must first search for exposure before talking about ruling Nigeria. My follow Yoruba race let’s join the rest of intellectual and intelligent Nigerians to move the country forward. let all put our country first and stand together to defend our democracy (The Government of the people) The money recovered from Abacha’s family alone is enough to give the country 24 hrs electricity, the budget for 2019 elections is enough to build and create a nation worth living in. My follow Nigerian youths let’s put the country fist, let’s carry our country’s problems first. and see if we can’t find peace and unity then watch the progress begin. It doesn’t necessarily matter Who is ruling Nigeria as long as we all have equal human rights and we are working to stand as number one in Africa Let’s vote out incompetence and nepotism, let’s vote out tribal and religious threats facing our mother land Nigeria, let’s vote out a weak and a broken president
