Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has expressed shock over the rejection by the House of Representatives Deputy Speaker, Hon Idris the petition from the Mutual Union of Tiv (MUTA) in America.

The aforesaid petition was brought to the House by the Member representing Gwer, Gwer-west Federal Constituency, Hon Mark Gbila.

The Governor noted that the action of the Deputy Speaker suppressed the voice of the people, lamenting that it contravened the principles upon which the nation’s democracy was built.

Ortom who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase maintained that Nigerians at home and in the diaspora have the right as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution as amended to express their views on issues affecting the country.
