BENUE State Governor Samuel Ortom yesterday took the oath of office for a second term in office with a promise to improve on his first term’s performance.
The Chief Judge, Justice Aondover Kakaan, administered the oath of office on Ortom before over 100,000 people at the IBB Square in Makurdi.
The governor admitted that he made mistakes in his first term, promising to right the wrong in his second coming.
He described the anti-open grazing prohibition law as the best executive bill and urged the Federal Government to embrace it so as to tackle the problem of farmers-herders’ clashes.
He listed his achievements in four years as covering education, health, roads, infrastructure and agriculture.
He promised that Benue people would feel the impact of governance in his next four years .
Former Senate President David Mark, Iyorchia Ayu, former Governor Gabriel Suswam and prominent Benue PDP chieftains, who spoke at the inauguration, called on the people to support Ortom.
