2019: I won’t spill anyone’s blood to secure second term – Ortom

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has said that although he is desirous of achieving his re-election as a constitutional right, it was not worth spilling of anyone’s blood.

The governor spoke when the forum of former political party executives led by Chief Michael Iduma visited him at the government house in Makurdi.

He explained that his decision to ensure peaceful congresses of the All Progressives Congress in the state was based on the above conviction.

The governor, who recalled Divine intervention in his 2015 election pointed out that the same God Who helped him in 2015 would also help in raising overwhelming support for his re-election in 2019.

He expressed appreciation for the support of the group and majority of people of the state in what he described as difficult times.

Governor Ortom referred to the state anthem which notes that although the giants may be on the way to hinder, God would surely bring victory, adding that all the difficulties he has in statecraft were giants that would be conquered.

Leader of the delegation, Chief Iduma called on the people of the state to reelect Governor Ortom so that he could sustain the good work he started for the state.

Chief Iduma lauded Ortom’s advocacy for ranching which he said was being accepted nationwide and his mature handling of challenges as leadership qualities that are exemplary.
