• The Benue State Governor-elect, Chief Samuel Ortom, has attributed his journey from a school drop-out to a motor park tout and eventually, an elected governor, to a divine arrangement.

    Ortom, who spoke in an interview with PUNCH on Wednesday, said his elevation from grass to grace was due to hard work and his firm belief in the grace of God.

    He said, “My journey from motor park tout to an elected governor is purely a divine arrangement. I cast my mind back to when I dropped out of school in Form Two; but I remained hardworking and I did not engage in crime to survive or fend for myself.

    “One thing I know is that hard work pays and you must keep faith in God; power belongs to God and He alone gives to whomever he will.”

    The former Minister of State for Industry, Trade and Investment said he dropped out of secondary school due to lack of funds to pay school fees but that he did not go astray or engage in criminal activities to survive.
