Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue, says Kayode Fayemi, Ekiti governor and chairman of the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), has the capacity to govern the country.

Ortom, a governor on the platform of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), said this on Saturday when he received Fayemi, an All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential hopeful, at the Benue government house.

Fayemi was in the state to consult with APC stakeholders ahead of his party’s presidential primary.

Nathaniel Ikyur, chief press secretary to Ortom, quoted his principal as saying all Nigerians, irrespective or religious or party affiliations, are interested in solutions to the challenges facing the country.

“All of us are involved and there is the need for us to work together to rescue our nation,” the Benue governor said.

Ortom also praised presidential hopefuls who have indicated interest to serve the country, adding that whoever God chooses to lead should prioritise the country above personal interests.

On his part, Fayemi said if elected president, he would retool the armed forces, encourage effective intelligence gathering, and strengthen the use of technology to tackle insecurity.
