…Says, Ortom has Demonstrated His Love for the Idoma-Igede Nation
The Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has demonstrated his unflinching love for the IDOMA-Igede nation by the nomination and confirmation of Justice Adams Onum as the first Chief Judge of Benue State from the Idoma extraction after 41 years of its existence.
Speaking with newsmen in Abuja, the National Coordinator, Coalition for Good Governance and Change Initiatives, CGGCI, Comrade Okpokwu Ogenyi described Gov Samuel Ortom as a true reflection of the Benue project.
He said Gov Ortom has not only proven his love for the minority Idoma but his zeal of building one united Benue devoid of ethnicity, nepotism, sentiment among other trivial dichotomy.
This is the third unprecedented achievement of Gov Ortom within a spate of six months.
“He initiated and implementing the Anti Open Grazing Law in Benue which security experts are calling for it nationalization as a permanent measure to curb herders/farmers clash, prevent blood bath, stop cattle rustling and restore inter tribal relation among herdsmen and the rest of Nigerians.
“Your Excellency sir, in 2019, Benue people especially the Idoma-Igede nation shall reciprocate your act of kindness, inclusiveness and love shown to Benue.
“For the first time, we have Head of Service of the State and Chief Justice of the State. Ortom deserved more than a second term to salvage Benue.
“Here is a governor whose interest is Benue, it’s people and future.
“It has been proven that there is no better Benue son than governor Samuel Ortom as he urged the All Progressive Congress, APC to give Gov Ortom automatic ticket if the Party is ready to win election in 2019”, he said.
Ogenyi then advised all the opposition parties in the State to endorse Ortom as their sole candidate for the 2019 governorship election.
