Indigenes of Gwer Local Government Area of Benue State, particularly traditional rulers, have commended the Benue State Governor, Rev Fr Hyacinth Alia for appointing Hon. Nicholas Gyegwe as Commissioner II in the Local Government Service Commission.
The Voice reports that, the Chairman, Gwer Traditional Council, Ter Gwer, Chief Dominic Akpe (JP), expressed gratitude over the appointment, saying the governor’s decision to appoint Gyegwe as Commissioner II is not by mistake.
“Within the first few months of his administration, the governor has proven that he is really a man of God and is willing to carry everybody along without discrimination”, he stated.
The Ter Gwer who described Gyegwe as a hard working person recalled the good services he offered in the past when he was elected as council chairman of Gwer Local Government and charged him to work towards making positive impact in the commission.
Chief Akpe also prayed God to take lead in Governor Alia’s administration, in order to build a greater Benue.
Also speaking, Chief Angbianbee Ugede, who urged Rev Fr Alia to sustain his efforts at providing good governance for people of the state, charged the appointee to reciprocate the kind gesture by using his office credibly and also liaise with the governor to bring more dividends of democracy to his people.
According to Mrs Wanyima Asuwe, a staff of Gwer Local Government in the Education Department, Governor Alia is the messiah sent by God to save Benue people even as she thanked him for appointing one of their sons into his government.
On his part, the appointee, Hon. Nicholas Gyegwe, thanked the Governor for finding him worthy to serve the state in that capacity and promised to carry out his responsibilities with every sense of commitment and called for the support of his people to enable him succeed.
