The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has called on Justice Mary Odili to join politics so as to further contribute to nation-building.
Ortom made the call while delivering a goodwill message on behalf of other Governors at the 70th birthday celebration and the launching of five books in honour of retired Justice Odili on Monday, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Ortom described Justice Odili as a patriotic Nigerian who has distinguished herself in service to God and humanity, noting that her retirement was a moment of double celebration as she clocks 70 years and has had an eventful career.
While congratulating retired justice Odili on her 70th birthday, Ortom acknowledged the credibility displayed in the service of humanity by the retired justice and expressed that he was not surprised that she had risen to the apex of her career and successfully retired after over 40 years of dedicated service to the nation.
“Now that you have retired, we need credible people like you to join us in politics, I, therefore, appeal to you to consider joining your husband, former Governor Peter Odili in politics so as to continue being a mother to all of us,” Ortom called.
