Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, today announced the restoration of subvention at the College of Health Sciences of the State University so as to sustain the accreditation of the institution.
He made the announcement when the management of the College led the third set of graduates of the College on a courtesy call on him at the Benue Peoples House. 
Governor Ortom assured that inspite of the financial challenges of the state he would bend backwards to pay the subvention so that the College could continue to produce medical doctors.
He also agreed to pay for the licence of the 28 doctors of the third set and to also attend their oath taking ceremony. 
The Governor who acknowledged the contributions of his predecessors in the successes recorded at the College stressing that he was happy that his dream of becoming a medical doctor was being realized indirectly through the youths of the state.
According to him, his administration has placed the state University on first line charge and ensured that its staff are being paid up to date inspite of the financial challenges of the state.
Provost of the College, Professor Simeon Adebisi, commended the Governor for breaking the jinx of lack of accreditation to facilitate the graduation of medical doctors at the institution but said issues of subvention, lack of carrying capacity, study aids and staffing still persisted.
President of the set, Dr Terlumun Surma, expressed appreciation to Governor Ortom for ensuring that they graduated after spending 10 and half years in medical school.
He solicited financial assistance to his classmates to enable them to obtain practising licenses.
Dr. Surma announced that his set would offer free medical services to people in the Governor's village as a gesture of appreciation for his role in their graduation.
