Ihyarev People Will Be the Biggest Beneficiaries of Governor Samuel Ortom's Administration - Hon Dickson Tarkighir

Member representing Makurdi/Guma Federal constituency at the National Assembly, Hon. Dickson Tarkighir has assured the people of Iharev of dividends of democracy in the Ortom-led administration in the state.
Dickson Tarkighir, who disclosed this yesterday during a breakfast meeting  he organized for Ihyarev people held at Aconns Guest House, Makurdi, who recently decamped to APC. 
Hon Tarkighir said Governor Ortom was passionate about the plight of Ihyarev as evident in the proposed construction of a Cargo Airport at Daudu, Guma Local Government Area of Benue State, a project he said would generate massive employment for the indigents of the area whom are Ihyarev.
He said the proposed Cargo Airport would house gigantic cold rooms which would minimise waste of perishable farm produce, add value to farm produce through availability of market and transportation system.
The  lawmaker said Governor Ortom was instrumental to the defection of his Ihyarev people from the PDP into the APC, assuring that his top priority was to also ensure the employment of Ihyarev youths both at the state and federal government levels in order to enhance their economic status.
According to him, the Ortom-led administration was already aware of the devastation caused by the Fulani mayhem in MINDA geopolitical zone and was exploring ways of rehabilitating the area through reconstruction of primary schools and health care centres.
In his remarks, Special Adviser to the governor on Education, Hon. Matthew Mnyam, sued for unity of purpose among Ihyarev for the needed development to thrive.
Dr. Felix Gbillah, Eugene Amaju and Godwin Ayaka, while speaking for Tyoshin, Isherev and Utyondu respectively applauded the leadership style of Hon.Dickson Tarkighir and urged him to work together with his counterpart from Gwer/Gwer-West with a view to attracting development to the MINDA axis of the state.
Speaking for women, Mrs. Theresa Bai called on the people of MINDA especially Ihyarev to wake up from their slumber and empower their own in order to boost the economic status of the people of the area.
Also speaking, coordinator of the event, Hon. Mike Adyo, appealed to National Assembly members from MINDA to liaise with the governor and the federal government with a view to finding a way of rehabilitating the ravaged MINDA communities and the Ihyarev axis in particular which was badly hit by the Fulani invasion.
