Governor of Benue State in Central Nigeria, Samuel Ortom has confessed that the situation of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) across the state has become so much of a concern to him, that it is now affecting his sexual drive with his wife in the inner room of the Government House.
According to the governor who expressed his latest challenge while speaking at a public function near the state capital, Makurdi, thoughts of the plight of these IDPs causes erectile dysfunction in his manhood.
Ortom blamed President Muhammadu Buhari and Minister of Special Duties, George Akume, stating that the duo have failed to support him in his fight against killer herdsmen, and have chosen to work against the interest of Benue people instead.
“Even when I am on top of my wife and I remember the people who are in IDP camps…” Ortom said, after which a man in the audience then helped him to conclude his sentence, saying “It goes flat,” to which the governor then responded with a smile.
In the wake of rising insecurity in his state, Ortom has been locked in fierce political confrontation with President Buhari and his appointees following his decision to implement a ban on open grazing of cattle by herders who share ethnic lineage with the president.
