Senator Akume Remains Our Leader – Ortom

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Senator George Akume, is still without a doubt the undisputed political leader of the State, according to Chief Samuel Ortom, the former governor of Benue State. 

This is true regardless of one’s political preferences. As he thanked well-wishers and supporters for coming to the celebration held in Makurdi to commemorate his 63rd birthday, the former governor made the statement and asked the public to continue praying for and supporting the SGF. 

In order for Benue State Governor Rev. Fr. Hyacinth Alia and President Bola Tinubu to be successful in their roles as governors, he also asked for prayers and support. The speaker observed that elections and legal disputes were concluded, and that the people should now support governance.

He said, “Let us continue to pray for President Bola Tinubu, let us also pray for the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, SGF, Senator George Akume, a great man who has given leadership to the state and this nation.

“God does not make mistakes. It is not by mistake that as SGF he had served as Local Government Chairman, he served as Permanent Secretary, he served as Governor for two terms, he served as Senator for three terms and he served as Minister and now SGF.

“God does not make mistakes. He is the undisputable leader of the state. We could have differences in political parties, but when it comes to our state Senator George Akume remains our leader.

“Let nobody be deceived; we are from the other political divide but when it comes to leadership, that is what it is. So let us support him.

“Let us also support Governor Hyacinth Alia. He is the one that God has brought at this time. Elections are over, litigation is over, now is for governance, we must support him.

“But he too must allow us to support him, because Benue belongs to all of us. If there is no Benue we cannot contest election in 2027. And so we are all stakeholders.”
