2019: Ortom’s appointees pledge support

Oluwatosin Omojuyigbe

Appointees of the Benue State Government on Monday pledged their support to the State Governor, Samuel Ortom, towards the realisation of his re-election in 2019 on the platform of any political party.

In a statement signed by its Special Adviser on Media and Information and Communications Technology, Tahav Agerzua, the appointees made the pledge during a meeting with Ortom at the New Banquet Hall of the Benue Peoples House in Makurdi.

Agerzua said the appointees pledged that they would follow Ortom anywhere he went as their faith in his leadership qualities remained unshaken.

He added that the governor had briefed the appointees on the alleged frosty relationship between him and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress in the state and his difficulty in operating in the same party with them.

He further said the leadership of the party at the national level had scheduled a meeting to resolve their differences in Abuja, adding that the governor would announce his decision on party membership thereafter.

He noted that the governor, however, said the decision he would take would reflect the wishes and aspirations of the people of the state but would not be imposed on any of the appointees.

The appointees include General Manager, Benue State Urban Development Board, Abraham Gbilekaa; Chairman of the State’s Scholarship Board, Joseph Nyam; Chairman,  Board of Management of the Benue State University Teaching Hospital,  Professor John Ibu; as well as the Special Adviser on Development Cooperation, Magdalene Dura.
