Team Ortom For Senate 2023 Pledges Support For Victory At The Polls
A Political Pressure Group, “Team Ortom for Senate 2023”, has pledged to support Governor Samuel Ortom to win the Benue northwest Senatorial seat in next year’s general election.
The Group, made up of seasoned politicians across the seven Local Government Areas of Benue North West pledged Tuesday, April 12th, 2022 when they paid the Governor a courtesy visit at Benue Peoples House, Makurdi.
Coordinator of the Group, Mrs. Monica Ugela who stated that the group was one among the first that was formed two years ago to support the Governor said its mandate was to impress on the Governor to contest for the seat even if he was not willing to.
She explained that the Governor has served the state with dedication, commitment, and sacrifices, stressing that as a group, they were convinced that if elected into the Senate after his tenure as Governor, he will attract more good things to the state.
The Coordinator of the “Team Ortom for Senate 2023” also said their support for Governor Ortom was based on what he has done for them as individuals, pointing out that they were not expecting any reward from him as they have been funding their activities themselves.
Speaking on behalf of the members of the group from Jemgbagh, Hon. Livinus Awuhe and Hon. Andrew Ayande for MINDA stated that none of the members was compelled or induced to work for the Governor and assured that they will continue with the support until their aim is achieved.
Governor Samuel Ortom in response expressed appreciation to the group for having the confidence in his ability to represent the zone despite the wrong perception of some people about him and promised not to disappoint the confidence reposed in him.
The Group presented branded souvenirs to the governor and his wife, Dr. Eunice Ortom including Face Caps, Tee Shirts as well as umbrellas to aid his campaign.
