Governor Ortom Sympathizes With The Family Of Dead NUJ Chariman.
Ukuma, who was until his demise a senior reporter with Radio Benue, passed away Today after a brief illness.
A member of the union told newsmen that Ukuma became unconscious yesterday and passed on this morning.
Ortom who commiserated with the entire media community across the country and the NUJ, particularly the Benue State chapter of the union, over the death of Ukuma described the diseased as a broadcaster whose talent and selfless disposition will be dearly missed.
The Governor, in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase on Today, described Ukuma’s demise as painful, not only to his family and NUJ but also to the state at large.
The Governor urged “the deceased’s family and his colleagues at Radio Benue as well as NUJ to take solace in the fact that the late state Chairman of the union lived a life worthy of emulation.”
Governor Ortom “prays God to grant Comrade Ukuma eternal rest and his family the strength to bear the loss.”
