Idomas in USA under fire over award of ‘Dedication and Service’ to Ortom

Written By Idoma Television on Monday, August 8, 2016 | 12:15:00 PM

The Idoma Association, USA has been under verbal attack over its recent award to Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom.

IDOMA VOICE reports that the association at the just concluded convention held at Techniplex Conference Centre in Houston, Texas, USA presented the award of Dedication and Service to the debt-owing governor.
Speaking at the ceremony, Chairman, Board of Trustees of the Association, Chief Cletus Agbo claimed Governor Ortom has shown tremendous commitment to service of the state since he assumed office.

He said Benue like many other states of the federation is passing through difficult times, yet, Governor Ortom has been able to carry out a number of projects in education, health and infrastructure.

However, checks by this newspaper in all the sectors mentioned above showed that the governor has failed woefully.

Findings also show that the governor has not paid salaries for months before the controversial award.

This honour did not go down well with natives of the community resident in Nigeria, who have since described the award as total ‘rubbish’.

Some residents, who spoke with Idoma Voice wondered how they group arrived at that, adding that the award shows they have no idea of what is happening back home.

“I am sure those guys are not representing the interest of Idoma community. Awarding Ortom for what? Wish they know the pains he has subjected the people back home to. This is a man that has been rated by even the blind man the least performing governor in Nigeria and they are there awarding him. Rubbish!,” a resident who gave his  name as Ajeh said.

Another angry Agbeje Martin said, “What performance? No salaries, insecurity, no capital project to counted, the unresolved isssu (non) ghost workers, etc. Please, I need education on the development in Benue State to vet this award.”

Samson Saater Awuapila said, “What's that? Is this meant to be a joke or they are mocking him?

On her part, Tina Ene Ogah Ameh said, “The people in the Diaspora has no right to give any award of this kind. I hope this is not true.”

Another Mike Kenny vented his anger this,  “Stupid old men, their own even if there work or not them the see food chop now so there are free to say anything there wants as for Orton he should not worry something will come up soon.”

Emmanuel Agada Abah Abegiiii said, “We go hear word. Performance ko performance ni. My village king deserves more award if that is what performance is.”

Obochi Owi Peter They have completely lost track n are been sycophants. Idomas are known for brevity n standing for the truth. We have to run a proper background check if these people are truly IDU sons n daughters.

 Alexy Inny I never knew those in USA also go after this people for money by singing their praises.
As a unionist in those days, we give such baseless award to extort our share from them those days. But I thought it is only for naija, never knew those in US also want their share too.
At least if he gives them $2000 as reward for selling their hungry people at home is something.

Julie Onmoke-Umaru There must be a Benue State doppelganger in the USA, because those of us at home are not aware of these achievements.

Levi Inalegwu Its a propaganda posted by governor Orton's supporters ,we are yet to see his achievement in Benue as a whole not to talk of Idoma land. They could be those jobless group residing in the U.S looking for what to eat I think. Back home here he is a failure for now.

Esther Godwin Cant believe these people are idoma, what has this governor done to deserve this award please? No be my Idoma at all.

David Matthew Eigege I use to think those in USA should know better.
So they have availed themselves to partake in the political charade. This is an insult on the Idoma ethnic nationality.

Obiabo Edwin Please for all Idoma sons and daughters, this award does not in any way represent the true stand of us here in USA. We Idomas in USA are supposed to know better. How can a group of people in their right senses gave awards to Ortom? Awards for non payment of salaries and poverty? Thank God I am not a member of this useless and attention seeking association. I'm sure if some of our fathers hear of this award, they will curse their children in USA.

Adah Ince Cletus Idoma People in the US gave Ortom award? That’s what happens when you eat too much of hamburger and drink lots of tanqerey. Idoma people in USA have lost it.

Gideon Ochefu Steven I have always said it and stood on my ground til date b4 this proof that nobody in abroad can tell me what is happening in my country better than me that is in it.

Oche Ukah useless award. What is wrong with those people? Why are they thinking like Donald Trump?
