I’m not discouraged in serving God – Ortom plans thanksgiving for losing election


Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has revealed plans to organize an “elaborate thanksgiving” to God for two reasons.

The governor who spoke on Sunday at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Signs and Wonders Mega Parish, Gboko Road, Makurdi, said he would be thanking God for helping him through his eight years in office and also for losing the senatorial bid.

Ortom who intended to represent the North-west Senatorial District at the upper Chamber of the National Assembly was defeated by his former aide, Titus Zam, of the All Progressives Congress, APC during the February 25 polls.

Speaking on the matter on Easter Sunday service, the governor insisted that though he lost the election, he was not defeated.

“I will be organizing an elaborate thanksgiving to God for two things. One for helping me through the eight-year tenure of my administration as Governor and the second one for losing the election.

“Even though I’ve not been able to secure the senate seat, I have no reason to be saddened because I may have lost the election, but I’ve not been defeated.”

According to the Governor, the reason he would be thanking God for losing the election was that “the Bible says a man can receive nothing except what is given to him from above.”
