Prince Samuel Onuh, had said Governor Ortom remains the only detribalized Nigerian with the political will to reunite all aggrieved ethnic nationalities and rescue the country from the grips of Boko Haram, bandits, insurgents, militants, and other fundamentalists making lives difficult for the citizens.
