Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has said that he would not seek for a re-election in 2019, until he sees another vision from God.
Governor Ortom said that God would determine his ambition in 2019, adding that, it was God who asked him to contest in the first place.
He said God had shown him a vision in 1992 that he was going to be a Governor in Benue State, which became manifested 23 years after.
He said, according to Daily Post, “I saw vision in 1992 and God asked me to go and become the Governor of Benue State. I attempted to become Governor in 2012 but it was not possible until in 2015 when God said it was time.
“If God directs me that I should go for a second term, no one can stop me. But if God has not spoken, I won’t re-contest”, he said.
He, however, described as “distraction”, the pressure from some quarters for his re-election, saying he was barely 2 years in office and the development of the state was his utmost priority.
Talking about his achievements so far in 2 years in office, the Governor said, “one of the achievements of this government is that, we have been able to curb insecurity.
“Before we came in, there were insecurity here and there – kidnapping, robbery, cultism and all that; but through our amnesty programme, over 900 criminals surrendered their weapons and we are now living in peace”.
