Ortom Preaches Peace among Warring Communities



Gov. Ortom

The Governor of Benue State, Mr. Samuel Ortom, has urged the good people of Bonta and Ukpute communities in Konshisha and Oju Local Government Areas (LGAs) to allow peace reign and sheathe their sword.

The Governor said this yesterday when he led other government officials, top political class, and security chiefs on a peace process to the communities. The governor appealed that nothing could be compared with peace and stressed that they should allow peace to reign.

“There should be no more hostilities. I enjoin you to embrace peace and dialogue,” he said.

Senator Abba Moro and Senator Gabriel Suswam had earlier appealed to the youths of the two communities to embrace peace and stop further hostilities.

The duo promised that they would do everything possible to restore peace to the warring communities. They pleaded with the people to give them the opportunity to end the crisis and put them back on the track of peace.

Also, the traditional rulers on both sides of the divide also agreed to abide by the peace accord that was initiated by the state government. The youths from Bonta and Okpute agreed to give peace an everlasting chance.
