Terver Akase, Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Wednesday, said that the Governor had a minor surgery.
Akase was reacting to questions regarding the plaster on Governor Ortom’s forehead.
He said Ortom had a boil on the right side of his forehead and the plaster was placed to prevent infection.
“A number of people have asked questions about the plaster on Governor Samuel Ortom’s forehead in the last few days. As a Governor whose wellbeing is the concern of his people, it is appropriate that we inform Benue people at all times about his engagements, health and movements.
“Like any other human being, Governor Ortom had a boil on the right side of his forehead and had a minor surgery. The plaster was placed to prevent infection. It is nothing serious to worry about.
“We deeply appreciate all the calls and questions from the good people of Benue State.”
Akase added that Ortom has continued to carry out his engagements, one of which is Wednesday’s Official Commissioning of the reconstructed and upgraded Aper-Aku Lodge at the Benue Peoples House, Makurdi by the Ag. BOT Chairman, Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Senator Adolphus Wabara.
