Governor Samuel Ortom has commiserated with the family of the elder statesman, Wantaregh Paul Unongo over the death of his wife, Mrs Victoria Unongo.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Terver Akase.
The Governor says Mrs Unongo was a mother to all and was a great woman who upheld good values and supported the less privileged in the society.
He states that her death is not only a huge loss to the Unongo Kwaghngise family but also to Benue State and the country in general.
Governor Ortom consoles the Second Republic Minister and former Chairman, Northern Elders Forum, Wantaregh Unongo and encourages him to take solace in the fact that his wife impacted positively on the lives of many.
The Governor prays God to grant the deceased eternal rest and her family the fortitude to bear the painful loss.
