BREAKING!!! Fulani Herdsmen are our Friends, We are now Ready to give them our land in Benue since we can't defeat them - Ortoms Says Makes U-Turn

Land would be granted to Fulani herders who wish to participate in ranching in Benue State, according to Governor Samuel Ortom.

According to the Daily Trust, he said this in Abuja on the 72nd birthday of former Nigerian ambassador to Mexico, Iyorwuese Hagher.

Ortom, who was represented at the occasion by Dennis Ityavyar, the state Commissioner of Education, took the opportunity to state that the people of Benue are not anti-Fulani.

“The Tiv people are historically the friends of the Fulanis and I like to submit that friendship still exists,” he was quoted by the newspaper.

“And so, I warn those people, who are either using politics or those who are criminals and trying to sell what’s wrong to people.”

“His Excellency, Governor Samuel Ortom has explained again and again that we, the Benue people, are not against the Fulani. We are still friends.

“Those who have a lot of cattle are still using ranching, and any Fulani person who wants to establish ranching in Benue will have the land. Even if our ‘Chairman’ wants to start a ranch, he will get the land today.

”We will give you land and start the ranching today so that people will see it as a model and wherever we go, we want to correct the impression because if you read history, you will see that we have always been friends with Fulani.”
