Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, says his emergence as fifth democratically elected Governor of the State and the selection of believers as Paramount Rulers in the two dominant tribes in the state is a manifestation of God’s grace upon the State.
He explained that it is this same grace that made it possible for him to be the 5th Governor while the paramount rulers of Tiv and Idoma nation are also the 5th in the emergence.
Governor Ortom gave this hint on Sunday, January 30, 2022, at the Makurdi residence of former Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Hon Ngunan Addingi, during a reception in her honour following a thanksgiving service.
He said this is enough blessing to be appreciated, stressing that all should share in the grace and be confident that Benue will come out of its challenges stronger.
The Governor described Mrs Addingi as a woman of virtue and principles who distinguished herself in service to the State.
