Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has visited the family of a deceased staff of his office, the late Mrs. Philomena Mwarga Musa, who died when the Reigners Bible Church collapsed in Uyo, Akwa Ibom, last Saturday.
While there, he directed the Head of the State Civil Service to employ Miss Iveren Agbor, the first daughter of the deceased and a graduate of Theatre Arts at the Benue State University, to fill the gap, in the family, which her mother’s departure had created.
In a condolence letter to the family of the deceased, he said,
“I was deeply saddened by the news of the collapse of the uncompleted church building which left dozens dead and scores injured throwing the state and entire nation into mourning,” the Governor Stated. Be assured that the people of Benue State stand with you in this trying moment.”
