Governor Ortom had earlier alleged that a cabal in the Presidency is preventing him from meeting President Muhammadu Buhari over the insecurity in his state.
Ortom made the allegation while addressing a press conference on Tuesday in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

The governor stated that he will not stop speaking out against any threat to the country’s sovereignty, asking all patriotic Nigerians to do the same.
Ortom pointed out that Nigeria is in trouble and asked the Muhammadu Buhari administration to save the country from the claws of Boko Haram insurgents, bandits and killer herdsmen.
