Gov. Or­tom, show your pres­ence in Orokam

Weekly Trust - - Weekend Magazine -

As Benue State Gover­nor Sa­muel Or­tom strate­gizes to re­turn to of­fice for a sec­ond term, it is per­ti­nent to note that the ben­e­fits of gov­er­nance have largely eluded Benue South, es­pe­cially as there doesn’t ap­pear to be any­one speak­ing for them. Ev­ery gov­ern­ment pro­ject where avail­able is tar­geted at choice ar­eas of the ad­min­is­tra­tion out­side Benue South (Ido­ma­land). This is more ev­i­dent in the vil­lages out­side the ever pop­u­lar Otukpo, known in ages as the Idoma cap­i­tal. One is pushed to ap­peal to Gover­nor Or­tom to use his good of­fices to reach out to the hin­ter­land of Idoma, and we at Orokam, Owukpa and Otukpa are wait­ing to see how Or­tom will make his pres­ence felt in our vil­lages. Orokam re­ally needs gov­ern­ment pres­ence, es­pe­cially as a nat­u­ral gate­way from Eastern Nige­ria, and has been se­ri­ously ne­glected in the cit­ing of gov­ern­ment projects. Gover­nor Or­tom, please come on over to Orokam and do some­thing real. Og­bada Aba-Ilolo, Ipole-Igwu Orokam
