Former president, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, yesterday visited Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State and urged the All Progressives Congress (APC) government to fulfill all campaign promises made to the people during the campaigns.
The elder statesman however, explained that his visit to Benue State was propelled by the development initiatives of the Ortom administration geared towards ensuring industrialisation of the state.
Obasanjo stated this at a dinner organised for him by Governor Ortom at the new Banquet Hall of the Benue Peoples’ House, Makurdi. He further appealed to the people of the state to support the governor to deliver good governance and enjoined farmers in the state and country to unite in order to provide food security, jobs and wealth for the nation’s growth.
According to him, he has confidence in the ability of Governor Ortom to deliver selfless service to the state and tasked the governor to uphold the core values of the blueprint of his administration.
“I believe that Governor Ortom is sincere. He wants practical development and I urge you people to constantly remind him of his promises and but support him to succeed,” he stated.
