I conveyed the Governor Samuel Ortom’s condolences to the family of Apiah Atogbon and the entire people of Turan over the death of Mr. Apiah Ephraim.
I had the honor and privilege to represent the Governor of Benue State Dr. Samuel Ortom were I delivered His funeral oration.
The Governor encouraged the people of Turan to emulate the life of Apiah who always stood firm for his people.
He advised those at crisis flash point to be vigilant and report suspicious move to security agents to avoid further occurrence of invasion by armed men and breakdown of law and order.
The Governor told the people to make use of the window availed them by government by buying fertilizer which is available at subsidized rate at the Ministry of Agriculture to boost their crop yeild .
He thanked civil servants for their show of understanding and said he is working towards clearing the arrears of salary in the shortest possible time.
On my part as the Special Assistant to the Governor on Social media and a son of Turan, I told my people not to be decieved by desperate politicians. They should cue behind Governor Samuel Ortom who has demonstrated uncommon love for the Turan people.
The Governor has laid his life for them and they should reciprocate by overwhelmingly supporting him like they did in 2015.
Rest In Peace Sir Apiah .
