Benue: Ortom reinstates aides who resigned to contest elections

Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has  reinstated political appointees who had resigned to contest elections but were not favoured by zoning.

According, to him, only those whose positions were not replaced will enjoy the privilege.

The Governor made this remark during a parley he had with all political appointees from the 14 local government areas of the state.

He added that the move is necessary  to show his appreciation for their dedication to supporting and working for his administration since their appointment and supporting consensus arrangements in their various constituencies.

He noted that there is no disagreement  between him and the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Iyorchia Ayu, saying those who create such false stories will be disappointed.

“I have no single problem with our National Chairman, Senator Ayu, our leader, Senator David Mark, Senators Gabriel Suswam, Abba Moro, Orker Jev or any leader of the party. We are consulting with one another without rancour. So, there is no truth whatsoever in such rumours,” he said.

The governor maintained that: “We are working together for the success of our party, and there is nothing such as division or rift whatsoever. There is nothing that will divide us,” he stated.
