Governorship aspirant in Benue State in 2015 on PDP platform, Chief Dr Samuel Ortom, has disclosed that over 400 groups have registered with his Governorship Organization to express support with his aspiration.
He spoke when leaders of one of such groups, Ortom Mastermind Group, visited him at his campaign headquarters in Makurdi.
Chief Dr Ortom described the group as the most vibrant, outstanding, and prominent in terms of mobilization and state wide spread.
The aspirant commended the sacrifices of the group which he said had been self sustaining and urged members to persevere to the end.
He pledged that if given the mandate he would provide the enabling environment as Governor for the people to identify and nurture their God given talents.
Speaking earlier, President of the organization, Mr David Adzenda, said the group chose to support Chief Dr Ortom on account of his experience in politics spanning over 30 years, service at all levels from the state to the national levels, as well as sterling leadership qualities which he said could be deployed to turn the fortunes of the state for the better.
He described the Minister as a foremost philanthropist and industrialist who was the largest individual employer of labor in the state.
Mr. Adzenda stated that the group whose tentacles were spread throughout the state was committed to the realization of Chief Dr Ortom’s aspiration.
Another group, Nzorov mothers also pledged support for the aspirant and donated writing jotters to his organization.
