TOR TIV STOOL: Tension In Benue As The Next Tor Tiv Is To Be Sworn In With The BIBLE & Not SWEM
"No traditional ruler in Benue State will again be allowed to get involved in partisan politics. The next Tor Tiv and other chiefs soon to emerge will take the oath of office with the Bible in their hands. Our people have tried swem but it failed us when we needed a defender against invaders. We will follow and obey God this time and allow His interest to prevail" - Governor Samuel Ortom speaking (now) at the Benue Peoples House, Makurdi, during the Interdenominational Fasting and Prayer Service for Divine Guidance in the Traditional Institution in Benue State.
