Insecurity: I’m Not Afraid of Death, I Will Not Be Silenced – Ortom

The governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has revealed that he has already prepared his will due to the spate of insecurity in the country.

Known to be outspoken about the insecurity in the nation, the governor said that he is confident that his family will not fight over his properties if anything happens to him.

According to Daily Trust, Ortom  made this statement on Wednesday when he received the team from the Administrative Staff College of Nigeria (ASCON) led by a representative of the Director-General, Mrs Cecilia Gayya at Government House in Makurdi.

The governor said, “I have written my will. Me, I’m not afraid of anybody. If I die now, my family will not be fighting because of what I have. I have stated what I want.

“And those people who are keeping quiet about what is happening in Nigeria, I want to tell them that they have children. Yes, because silence is consent. So, Nigerians must resist the evil that is happening.

He continued, “Me, I have played my part and I promised myself not to be intimidated by anyone. I’m over 60 years. God has given me enough. God has been so gracious to me and I appreciate Him.

“So, nobody should think that him or her will cage Samuel Ortom in this life. But I believe that the God that I serve will surely protect me as He has been doing. Several attempts have been made to eliminate me, to assassinate me but God has protected me,” the governor said.
