Ortom sacks 4 Commissoners, appoints new SSG


Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has appointed a new Secretary to the State Government and sacked four commissioners.

According to Tahav Agerzua, the Special Adviser to the governor on Media and Publicity, the new SSG is Tony Ijoho, who replaces Targema Takema.

The sacked commissioners are Odeh Agih, Information; Mnyim Mwuese, Women Affairs; Nick Wende, Water Resources and Environment; as well as Sekav Iortyom, Arts, Culture and Tourism.

No reason was given for their sack.

Meanwhile, Ortom has said President Muhammadu Buhari will return to the country in good health.

He said: “Those that are wishing Mr. President dead should go and confront God who brought him to be President of Nigeria.

“It was not his making. When that time came, God made it possible, just like some of us.

“It was God that made it possible for us to be here and nobody can remove us until the time that God’s programme for Nigeria is completed and God decides what to do next.”’
