Gov Ortom’s tag of Bala as terrorist ‘ungubernatorial’ – Hamisu Shira


Bauchi state commissioner of environment Hamisu Shira has described the tag of his principal Governor Bala Mohammed by the Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom terrorist as ‘ungubernatorial’.

The commissioner who was reacting to the recent disagreement between the two governors on the endemic farmers and herders clashes said no matter what, it was ungentlemanly for the Benue State Governor to call his colleague a terrorist.

According to him, such reckless remarks could trigger disaffection among the citizens of the two states.

Aside from that, Shira opined that the fact that the two governors belong to the same political party, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) such conflicts should be avoided as it could cause internal crisis in the party.

“I am disappointed. He is a governor who is in the same political party with Bala.

“I will therefore use this opportunity to call on the leaders of PDP to call Ortom to order because he is simply bringing disaffection, enmity”. He opined.

Recall that Governor Douyo Diri on Thursday appealed to the two governors to sheath their swords and forgive each other for the best interest of the party.
