Ortom, Tsav clash again

Written By Idoma Television on Monday, May 16, 2016 | 1:06:00 AM

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has sup­ported the decision of the Federal Government to de­regulate the oil sector.

He described it as the best option for the country in the face of the present eco­nomic challenges.
This was just as former Lagos State commissioner of Police, Abubakar Tsav insisted that removal of fuel subsidy was outra­geous and exploitative.
Regardless, Ortom made the position of his adminis­tration known at the week­end when he spoke at the funeral of mama Elizabeth Ogbeh, mother of the Min­ister of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Chief Audu Ogbeh, held at St. Francis’ Catholic Church, Efugo, Otukpa, Ogbadibo local government areaof the state.

The governor lamented that money realised from oil subsidy had been mis­used in the past and said the decision of President Muhammadu Buhari ad­ministration to remove subsidy on petroleum products was a good devel­opment.

On the other hand, Tsav, who lamented the untold hardship the sub­sidy removal would cause ordinary Nigerians, who he said were being owed months of salaries and pensions, warned that if nothing is done to address the issue and revert back to the former price, the mat­ter could cause more hard­ship for Nigerians.

“The price increase of petroleum product will cause more hardship to Ni­gerians. Jonathan may be better here and the much talked about change may be fraud.”
