The governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, has said that he now knows why President Donald Trump said there are “shithole countries” in Africa.
Reacting to the impeachment notice which eight lawmakers of the All Progressives Congress (APC) served on him, Ortom said such a thing would only happen in a “shithole country”.
According to the governor, he was being targeted for moving to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The governor accused the inspector-general of police (IGP) and director-general of the Department of State Security Services (DSS) of perpetuating evil, appealing to President Muhammadu Buhari to call them to order.
He also alleged that George Akume, a serving senator in the state, was behind the political crisis in Benue state. He said that:
“Now I know why Trump called Nigeria a shithole country. It’s only in a shithole country that eight house of assembly members can suspend 22 lawmakers”.
