Benue 2019: ‘God’ has endorsed me for second term – Ortom

Written By Idoma Television on Friday, November 10, 2017 | 12:52:00 AM

Benue Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Thursday claimed that a ‘God’ has asked him to contest for second term in office, come 2019.

Ortom had in June declared that he was waiting to hear from God to know whether to contest for run for second term in 2019 or not.

On Wednesday, Ortom said he had received an instruction from God to go ahead and run for second term.

He made this claim on Thursday when some party members drawn from 13 local government areas of the state visited him and endorsed him for second term.

The governor said after a series of endorsements and pressures mounted on him to run again in 2019, he had decided to take their wishes to God who had also directed him to heed the voice of the people and contest in 2019.

Governor Ortom said he felt the plight of Benue workers who were being owed salaries for several months, promising that he would do everything humanly possible to clear the salary arrears.

“I accept your endorsement. I’m more committed now than before to offer service to the people. The endorsement has encouraged me, because the voice of the people is the voice of God.

“After pressure from people to contest in 2019, I decided to seek divine directive, God told me to hearken to the voice of the people. On this note, I have agreed to make myself available and will contest in 2019.”

All those who spoke on behalf of the people said Governor Ortom was the best man for the job and listed the re-opening of Benue State University and graduation of more than 150 medical doctors, reconstruction of the schools of nursing and midwifery, ongoing face lift of over 700 primary schools, and implementation of minimum wage for primary school teachers as justification for the endorsement.
