The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to the rift between Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State and his counterpart, Governor Bala Mohammed who have been attacking each other over Fulani herdsmen.
Mohammed had said Fulanis herdsmen carry AK-47 to defend themselves in the forests, Governor Ortom, urged Mohammed to revisit his oath of office because he had failed in keeping his oath of protecting the lives and properties of the people.
Reacting, the party call for calm saying it had intervened and reconciliation was ongoing.
A tweet on the PDP Twitter page reads, ”PDP calls for calm as the internal reconciliation mechanism introduced by the hierarchy of the party between the two governors subsists.
”PDP urges the Federal Government to take urgent steps to address the escalated security challenges in our country.”
