Governor Samuel Ortom has reassured Benue people that he will meet with the COVID-19 Action Committee on Wednesday April 16, 2020 to review the measures put in place to prevent the spread of the pandemic in the state.
Thiswas disclosed in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, dated
April 13, 2020.
He said that the meeting which was scheduled to hold on, Monday April 13, has been shifted to Wednesday as a result of the public holiday.
The Governor appreciated Benue people for their understanding and cooperation which he noted has significantly complemented the efforts of the State Government against the virus.
He called for sustained cooperation from the people in the face of the difficulties the dusk to dawn curfew, closure of markets and other public places might have caused them.
Meanwhile, Governor Ortom will on Tuesday, attend a joint security meeting of Benue, Nasarawa and Taraba States scheduled to take place in Lafia.
The meeting will among other issues, address renewed violence in border communities of the three states such as last week’s attack on Jootar in Ukum Local Government Area of Benue State by armed militia.
