Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has gone into isolation for the second time. This is because he came in contact with persons who tested positive for COVID-19.
The governor had first gone into isolation on July 2020 when his wife, Mrs Eunice Ortom, son, and some of the wife’s personal aides were found to have contracted COVID-19.
Announcing the new development, the State Deputy Governor, Engr. Benson Abounu, said, “As I speak with you, the Governor has been in isolation for about 9 days and has shown no symptoms or signs of the virus. So, I am happy to inform you that by tomorrow, we should be able to certify him free and he will resume work,” he said.
