STUDENTS ASK ORTOM TO DELCARE FEB. 23RD BENUE INDEPENDENCE DAY
Students of the Federal University of Agriculture Makurdi have asked Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom to declare Feb. 23rd as independence day for people of the state.
They made the call today during a courtesy call on the Governor at Benue Peoples House Makurdi.
The students stated that it was heartwarming for people of the state to retire a demi-god who had held the state hostage for several years, saying the day was worth celebrating by people of the state.
Leader of the Students Union Government, SUG, Comrade Jacob Dajo, who is also the SUG President said Benue people will reciprocate the good gesture of the Governor by voting massively for his re-election next Saturday.
Governor Ortom acknowledged the support of the students to his administration, saying he remains committed to people oriented leadership that accommodates superior arguments from the led.
He stated that he has been freed from the dictates of a godfather and is now poised to provide quality leadership to people of the state.
The Governor urged the students to make their studies a priority in order to prepare themselves to be able to take over leadership from the present crop of leaders.
