Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has charged all leaders irrespective of political affiliation to join hands and work together for the good of Nigeria.
Ortom stated this on Thursday in a brief remark at the launching of the Solomon Lar Leadership Institute and presentation of an autobiography of the late nationalist titled, "Chronicles of the Rainbow" held in Abuja.
He reiterated his earlier position that all is not well with Nigeria while advocating the need for leaders and citizens to complement each other in efforts toward salvaging the country.
"As a country, let us know that the Bible says that we shall know the truth and the truth will set us free.
"It is only when we say the truth, when we walk the truth, when we act the truth, that we will be free.
"Let nobody deceive anyone that it is well with Nigeria. Nigeria is sick.
"All is not well with our country. Nigeria is on oxygen and all hands must be on deck for us to salvage this country," he insisted.
He emphasised the need for synergy from all leaders to redeem the country.
"We need to work together. President Buhari cannot do it alone.
"We must join hands with him by telling him the truth.
"The Speaker House of Representatives or the Senate President cannot do it alone. The Governors cannot do it alone.
"We must work together to ensure that we complement each other to make things work, otherwise only God knows where we will be tomorrow."
