Following The statement made by the Benue state Governor, Samuel Ortom during the Interdenominational Fasting and Prayer Service for Divine Guidance in the Traditional Institution in Benue People's House as part of the process to selecting a new 'Tor Tiv' (Tiv Traditional Ruler), Read What He Said below;
"No traditional ruler in Benue State will again be allowed to get involved in partisan politics. The next Tor Tiv and other chiefs soon to emerge will take the oath of office with the Bible in their hands. Our people have tried swem but it failed us when we needed a defender against invaders. We will follow and obey God this time and allow His interest to prevail"
