Nigeria is on life support - Ortom


Nigeria Not Well , Don’t Deceive Yourself – Ortom ….Extols the virtues of Mailafia

Dr. Samuel Ortom, the Governor of Benue State, has declared that all is not well in the country.

The governor said Nigeria is on life support while paying a condolence visit on Wednesday 29 September 2021, to the family of the late Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Dr. Obadiah Mailafia.

Governor praised the late consummate writer and technocrat for his commitment to justice and truth.

According to him, "Dr Mailafia was fearless and he stood on the side of the truth. As the Bible says, ‘You should know the truth and the truth shall set you free."

"Our brother stood for truth and justice. "Anyone saying that all is well in Nigeria is just deceiving himself. Nigeria is on life support. Nigerians have never been divided as it is today. 

"Let everyone know that Nigeria is greater than any person. Nigeria is greater than all of us. We must team up and work. We must combine our faith in Nigeria with work in order to salvage our nation from those who seek to destroy it. 

"Refusing to combine our faith with work is akin to pumping a punctured tyre.

"We are here to pay our respects to Dr. Mailafia and console the family. We appreciate God for giving us Mailafia and for all he did in his life time. "The actions and memories he left behind shall ever remain alive. "

"Those who are celebrating his death are lying. What Dr. Mailafia did in life will continue to germinate and bear fruit for many years to come. We appreciate him and thank God for him.

"I stand with Dr. Mailafia, even in his death. I appreciate his principles, and though dead, we shall continue with the struggle.

"I encourage my mother to be strong. When our time has come, there is nothing on earth that can stop it. Be strong in the Lord and know that "all things work together for the good of those that are called by God," Ortom consoled the bereaved family.

Dr. Pogu Bitrus, the National President of the Middle Belt Forum (MBF), welcomed Ortom to the Mailafia home and thanked him for taking time out of his busy schedule to pay a condolence visit to the family of Dr. Mailafia, one of Nigeria's distinguished elder statesmen and prominent sons of the Middle Belt Region.

Mrs. Margaret Mailafia, the widow of the former CBN Deputy Governor, and some of his siblings were among those who welcomed the governor. 

Among them were Dr. Luka Mailafia, Professor Samuel Mailafia, and Barr Abel Mailafia.
