2019: I will do greater things as PDP governor – Ortom assures Benue people

The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Thursday assured people of
the state that his administration was committed to taking the state to
"greater heights of development."

This was disclosed by the governor's Chief Press Secretary, Tever
Akase, at PDP state secretariat in Makurdi, the state capital when he
met with the party's spokesperson, Bemgba Iortyom.

Akase said Ortom remained "focused on the task of overcoming the
numerous economic and security challenges confronting the state."

Akase added that the heartwarming signs were already showing, pointing
out that the regular payment of workers salaries since January this
year has proven that the Benue State Government is determined to clear
the arrears of salaries.

He noted that the PDP stands for people-oriented development, adding
that "Ortom is one of those who built the party in the state and would
work assiduously for its victory at the general elections next year."

Akase, who added that Ortom was happy to return to the party, noted
that the PDP was known for "many good things, and it is a political
party, which encourages those who win elections on its platform to
perform creditably instead of encouraging godfatherism and impunity."

He described the critical role PDP played in promoting good governance
while in the opposition, saying he was in the office of the state
Publicity Secretary of the party to "demonstrate their resolve to
synergize and deepen information dissemination in the interest of the
state."

Also speaking, Iortyom thanked the Chief Press Secretary for the visit
and assured him of a harmonious working relationship.

Iortyom, while commending the governor for the decision to return to
the party, observed that there was "renewed vigour in the manner the
Governor has been addressing development challenges facing the state
since his defection from APC."
