Nigerian Concord Newspaper
Ahead of 2019 general election, a PDP women group in Benue state under the aegis of Zone B PDP Women for Ortom has adopted Governor Samuel Ortom for a second term in office.
The endorsement was made in the presence of the Benue first lady, Dr. Eunice Ortom when the group converged at IBB square Makurdi at a flag off ceremony.
At the event, the group showed uncommon enthusiasm and unprecedented commitment in their support for the second term of Governor Samuel by their large turn out and camaraderie. They said they prefer the governor to continue to protect them.
They added that they are very proud of the achievements of the Governor since his return to the PDP, stressing that they would be supporting him for another term in office
They said the governor has done well in the areas of infrastructural development as well as the steps he has taken so far to defend the state from herdsmen violence.
According to them, the anti open grazing law has made it possible for them to engage in agricultural activities without the menace of herdsmen.
The group further stated that as women and children are usually the victims of fulani herdsmen violence in the state,they will only vote for a governor that will defend and protect them from attacks of the herders.
The event was attended by the wife of the governor,Mrs Eunice Ortom and very influential political leaders of zone B in including executive council chairmen in the area.
