What I Told Saraki In Benue – Ortom



Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has applauded the National Assembly for rising against what he described as impunity being perpetrated in the state and other parts of the country.

He commended members of the National Assembly while speaking at NKST Church, Low Level, Makurdi during a thanksgiving mass to mark the 70th birthday celebration of Senator Barnabas Gemade (Benue North East) on Sunday.

The Governor said, “people know their true friends in times of travails, Senate President, Bukola Saraki and other members of the National Assembly have indeed shown that they are true friends of Benue people when impunity was being supervised in the state.

“I urge Saraki to remain courageous in defending the rule of law and for ensuring that Nigerians get justice.”

Ortom said the celebrant, Barnabas Gemade had impacted many lives positively, noting that his reign as Managing Director, Benue Cement Company (BCC), Minister, National Chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and now Senator had left indelible marks on the people.

Speaking at the occasion, Senate President, Bukola Saraki who congratulated the celebrant on his 70th birthday, described Gemade as a man of integrity who has remained firm in the defense of his people on the floor of the senate.

He pointed out that the upper chamber of the National Assembly under his leadership would continue to stand with Benue people, adding that the days of impunity were almost over.
