George Okoh in Makurdi
Governor of Borno State and Chairman, Northern Governors’ Forum, Kashm Shettima, has called for an outright proscription of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), noting that it is an evil party.
Shettima, who made this call tuesday in Makurdi during a visit to Governor Samuel Ortom to congratulate him on the emergence of a new Tor Tiv, accused the party of under developing the nation.
He also maintained strongly that if President Muhammadu Buhari had not emerged as president the country would have gone into extinction.
Shettiima said 2017 would mark a watershed in the politics of Nigeria just as he added that the NGF does not owe any apology to Nigerians for its political actions.
On the incessant Fulani attacks in most parts of the North, Shettima stressed that the governors would continue to provide an enabling environment for peaceful co-existence, stating that they are determined to transform the states into an egalitarian society.
While congratulating the Tiv nation for the peaceful selection of a Tor Tiv, Prof. James Ayatse, he announced the donation of 100 cows for the coronation and promised to mobilise all the northern governors for the installation.
He described Senator George Akume as great leader who possesses the same qualities as Joseph Tarka, and also eulogised Governor Samuel Ortom as a great leader who epitomises modesty, wisdom and humility.
