Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has responded to the passing of previous Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ibrahim Mantu.
Ortom, in an articulation delivered by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, on Tuesday, said the downfall of Senator Mantu is an excruciating misfortune to Nigeria.
According to him, Mantu’s demise happened at a time the country direly needs the insightful guidance and experience of legislators, for example, the previous Deputy Senate President to assist it with conquering the current security and monetary challenges.
The lead representative depicts Senator Mantu as a genuine leftist and nationalist who assumed a fundamental part in nursing the country’s beginning vote based system from 1999 to where it is today.
He expressed that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, specifically, will profoundly miss its previous Board of Trustees part who made sacrificial commitments to the development, solidarity and achievement of the party.
Ortom felt for the Mantu family, the public authority and individuals of Plateau State and appealed to God for God to give the previous Deputy Senate President interminable rest.
DAILY POST reports that Mantu died in a private hospital in Abuja at around 2 am on Tuesday.
Mantu was said to have been sick for nine days.
