Ortom Gifts LG Deputy Chairmen Official Vehicles

Samuel Ortom

The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has presented official vehicles to the 23 Deputy Chairmen of Local Government Councils in the state.

Ortom also presented start-up kits to 43 youths of the state trained in automobile maintenance at the Innoson Kiara Academy, Nnewi.

This, the Governor said, it is part of efforts towards economic empowerment for youths of the state.

Ortom who performed the ceremony Tuesday in Makurdi also presented eight buses to various labour unions and organizations in the state to facilitate their operations.

He described Deputy Chairmen of Local Government Councils as critical to local government administration and charged them to maintain the official vehicles presented to them, stressing that despite paucity of funds, the vehicles were provided to facilitate the discharge of their duties.

Other vehicles were presented to labour unions, the palace of the Tor Tiv and Och'Idoma as well as other socio-political groups.

The Governor said the vehicles are meant to enhance the operations of the various unions as well as support the effective transportation needs of the two palaces of the paramount rulers of the Tiv and Idoma nations.

Ortom charged the graduands from the Innoson Kiara Academy Nnewi, Anambra State to make good use of the knowledge they have acquired from the training.

He pointed out that due to saturation of the labour market and gross inadequacy of white collar jobs, it is important for young people to embrace skills for economic reliance.

"When you start up and begin to make money, remember to invest again so that you can compete favourably in the industry.
"Do your best and I look forward to your succeeding in this endeavour that you have undertaken."
