Ortom: Why I Cannot Introduce Free Education In Benue
By Godwin Akor, Makurdi
Ortom told journalists on the occasion of an interactive session, organized to mark democracy day that when he was with the APC, he promised free education but when he moved to the PDP, the manifesto changed.
He however observed that in the past five years, his administration upgraded over 1000 primary schools and supplied customized tables and chairs across the three senatorial zones.
The governor also said two higher institutions, Akpera Orshi College of Education, Yandev and Akawe Terkula College of Advanced and Professional Studies, Makurdi, have been upgraded to Polytechnics.
He said the state’s Health Insurance Scheme bill has signed into law, adding that Benue was in the position of feeding the nation but herdsmen attacks have done a devastating blow.
Ortom disclosed that in the past two months, herdsmen have killed no fewer than 60 persons in Benue state and lent support to the call for restriction of entry by foreign herdsmen.
