The letter explained that Governor Ortom actively supported the passage of the Local Government Autonomy Bill by the 7th Benue State House of Assembly.

“The NULGE family in Nigeria resolved to appreciate you with this award because you are the first Governor to have fully granted autonomy to the Local Government in Benue State by approving for their participation as union leaders, including NULGE in the state joint account,” Igbe noted.

The award, which is to be presented to the Governor tomorrow in Makurdi, was an initiative of the late NULGE National President, Comrade Ibrahim Khaleel with the approval of the National Working Committee of the union before his demise.
