There was excitement in the camp of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Benue State, Chief Dr Samuel Ortom, this morning when Mrs Rebecca Afaityo, former General Manager of the Community and Social Development Agency, CSDA, in the state was spotted in the Makurdi residence of candidate.
Mrs Afaityo is extremely popular with rural communities across the state for her work among them.
Many flocked to her including Chief Dr Ortom and his wife Eunice.
Others who knew and extolled her virtues included Professor Joseph Alkali, Dr Adzer Abya and Mr Sarwuan Tarnongo.
Mrs Afaityo stated that communities are the pivot upon which development revolves and cited her visit to India where she said she saw communities establish industries, build roads, hospitals and water schemes.
She stated that she decided to partner with Chief Dr Ortom so that when he wins Benue communities would be on the upward swing once again.
The former Minister of State, Industry, Trade, and Investment, and his entourage sang the campaign anthem and prayed before departure for a thanksgiving service at St Athanasius Parish, Gbajimba.
