Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has said the government and people of Benue State were ready to give the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar a rousing reception when he visits the State for his campaign on Friday.
Ortom in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase said that the people of the state would welcome Alhaji Atiku as a sign of love and confidence they have in him.
Describing the former Vice President as the right man to restore unity among Nigerians and give them a sense of belonging as citizens, Ortom expressed confidence in the ability of Alhaji Atiku Abubakar to provide the quality of leadership the people needed at a time the country is passing through difficulties occasioned by impunity.
He also noted that majority of Benue people have resolved to cast their votes for Atiku on February 16 with optimism that his administration will be able to end the wanton killing of innocent people in parts of the state by armed herdsmen.
He maintained that a government headed by Alhaji Atiku will drive economic policies that would offer youths of the country rewarding job opportunities that would make them more useful to themselves and their communities.
The governor also urged thousands of PDP supporters from all parts of the State to come out and receive Alhaji Atiku Abubakar at Aper Aku Stadium, Makurdi, on Friday.
