Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has said God is the real governor of Benue as everything he does is dictated by Him.
Ortom spoke yesterday in Gboko at a ceremony marking the 40th anniversary of the Full Gospel Revival Crusade Incorporated Nigeria.
“I am the governor but the Real Governor is God,” he said.
He urged the congregation to join him in executing God’s counsel so that the revival in Benue would blossom.
Referring to Job 36: 11-12, Ortom said his desire was for the people to live a fulfilled life by being on the side of God.
He congratulated Full Gospel Revival Crusade Inc. Nigeria for clocking 40 and reiterated his administration’s readiness to partner the church.
Crime Reporters Association of Nigeria (CRAN) has conferred Governor Ortom the award of best crime fighter.
Ortom was among 75 individuals, groups and corporate bodies, which received similar awards yesterday at the Sheba Event Centre in Ikeja, Lagos.
CRAN’s President Mr. Odita Sunday said the recipients were chosen after an evaluation of their contributions to the fight against crime in Nigeria and their localities.
He noted that Ortom’s carrot-and-stick amnesty programme helped in mopping up illegal weapons in Benue.
Ortom’s Special Adviser on Media and ICT Mr. Tahav Agerzua received the award on his behalf.
