Gov. Ortom’s CPS, Akase dedicates humanitarian award to Governor

BENUE, Nigeria – Chief Press Secretary to Governor Samuel Ortom, Mr Terver Akase, has dedicated his One Star Gold Award presented to him by Makurdi Lions Club to his principal, the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom.

Akase who was recently honoured by the Makurdi Lions Club in recognition of what the group described as his ‘Dedicated Humanitarian Services’ in line with the Lions Charity Foundation 2019/2020, said he has learnt the act of touching lives from his boss, Governor Ortom and his wife, Dr Eunice Ortom.

The Chief Press Secretary said, “In the past five years of working with the Governor and his wife, one very important virtue I have learnt from the Benue first family is their disposition to helping others. I have learnt from them that it is better to assist people who cannot reward you; people who are truly in need and deserve to be assisted,” he stated.

“This particular award from Makurdi Lions Club means a lot to me because it has to do with works of charity. It also means that the little efforts we make are positively impacting lives in small ways. That’s what God expects us to do for fellow human beings” the CPS stated.

He, however, thanked Makurdi Lions Club for the honour, adding that it has spurred him to do more.

Meanwhile, the National Association of Nigerian Students, NANS, also recently honoured Mr Terver Akase for his support to students and youths in general, irrespective of where they come from.
