Ortom commiserates with Deputy over brother’s death



Benue State governor, Mr. Samuel Ortom has commiserated with the Deputy Governor of Benue State, Engr. Benson Abounu over death of his younger brother, Mr. Samuel Omleche Abounu.

In a condolence letter to Engineer Abounu, Governor Ortom said the death of a sibling is usually a painful experience given the bond that exists among persons of the same parents.

He said the news of the demise of Samuel Abounu came to him as a shock, moreso that the deceased was a man full of life and vigour who dedicated his time, energy and resources to the service of God and humanity.

“As Senior Assistant Registrar with the Benue State Polytechnic, Ugbokolo, he brought his rich experience to bear on the performance of his duties. His sterling qualities and deep sense of character impacted positively on the lives of those who came in contact with him,” the Governor stated.”

He said though no amount of words could assuage the pains of the Abounu family, they should take solace in the fact that their son and brother lived a life worthy of emulation and had the opportunity to contribute his quota to the development of his fatherland.

He equally prayed that the late Samuel Abounu rests in peace.

Abounu passed on after a brief illness a few days ago.
