Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has berated the Sultan of Sokoto, Saad Abubakar, over his negative comments on the proposed cargo airport in Benue capital, Marjudi.
Ortom who was speaking to newsmen at a Millennium Development Goals (MDGS) event yesterday narrated:
“The Sultan spoke in ignorance. Anyone criticizing the cargo airport project is either ignorant, illiterate no matter his level of education, or doing so out of mischief or jealousy.
“We are not here to do propaganda but here to impact positively on the lives of our people. The ambulances are not meant for carrying corpse but for the living. They are not meant for the sole administrator.
“But to be used for the purpose it is meant for. Anyone found using them unlawfully would be sanctioned.”
