Samuel Ortom, the governor of Benue State, said that while he appreciates the call from the group Movement for Good Governance and Democracy and other Nigerians who have said that he should have been on the list of people President Muhammadu Buhari recently gave national awards to, his main goal is to serve the people of the State.

According to the 460PLAY, President Muhammadu Buhari gave some Nigerians the national awards Commander of the Order of Niger (CON) and Commander of the Order of the Federal Republic (COFR) on October 11. (CFR).

After the event, some of the governor of Benue’s supporters asked why he wasn’t on the list of people who got the award.

In response, Governor Ortom said in a statement released Monday by his Special Adviser for Media and Publicity, Terver Akase, that he is happy with the support and honor the people of Benue have given him since 2015.

The governor asked the people and groups who were upset about the awards not to make a big deal out of them, but instead to pray for him to keep doing his job of serving Benue State and the country.

“The Governor is still thankful to Almighty God for giving him the chance to lead the state and also help build the country.

“He congratulates everyone who won a National Honours Award and urges them to keep giving back to their country without expecting anything in return,” the statement said.
