It was gathered the governor stated this on Monday at the Benue Peoples House, Makurdi while swearing in his Special Adviser on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Mr. Jerome Torshimbe.

The Governor noted that he was consulting with relevant stakeholders, stressing that he would soon make his next move known to Benue people.

Ortom also charged the new appointee to justify the confidence reposed in him through hardwork and commitment to duty and to imbibe the core values of his administration which include transparency, accountability, justice and equity.

The governor stated that Torshimbe’s appointment was based on his capacity to serve especially at a critical time like this, even as he charged him to reach out to all.
