 Tiv Youths tackle Ortom over call for Kanu’s release, demands payment of pensioners’ benefits, workers’ salaries

Ortom

The Tiv Youth Council Worldwide has lambasted Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State for calling on the Nigerian government to release the detained leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu.

Governor Ortom on Thursday asked the Nigerian government to release the IPOB leader as part of the peace-building effort in the country, describing Kanu's issue as a socio-political challenge that should be dealt with politically.

According to Ortom, if President Muhammadu Buhari’s government could release Boko Haram terrorists to reintegrate them into society, why should Nnamdi Kanu continue to languish in detention.

But reacting to the call in Abuja, the president of the Tiv Youth group, Mike Msuaan, asked the governor to immediately return home from his trip abroad to pay the pensions and salaries of his state’s pensioners and workers respectively.

“It is worrying that a governor who has been unable to meet minor demands of governance like paying workers and pensioners benefits for several months is on globe gallivanting venture.
