Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state honoured his former boss, Mnenge Mtemave, and other contemporaries in Gboko Motor Park on Monday, December 27, for making a positive impact on his life as a conductor.
In the spirit of the 2021 yuletide, the Benue governor also celebrated the driver's colleagues at his residence in Ipav, Mbadim in the Gboko local government area.
Ortom worked as a motor conductor for Mtemave, a driver at the Gboko Motor Park, in the late 1970s and early 1980s while growing up in Gboko town after dropping out of primary school, according to the newspaper.
During the celebration, which was attended by his peers, former boss, and family members, he recalled how Mtemave recruited him to work as a conductor and then taught him how to drive.
During his morning devotion, the governor claimed God revealed to him that he should pay a visit to, rejoice, and thank his old boss, Mtemave, for laying the groundwork for him to become who he is today.
Abugh Vaaswem and Aondopine Tim, speaking on behalf of the Ugbada family and former colleagues, thanked the governor for his kind gesture and hoped that God would bless him.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
