Ortom, who spoke to The PUNCH in an interview in Makurdi on Wednesday, said his elevation from grass to grace was due to hard work and his firm belief in the grace of God.
He said, “My journey from motor park tout to an elected governor is purely a divine arrangement.
“I cast my mind back to when I dropped out of school in Form Two; but I remained hardworking and I did not engage in crime to survive or fend for myself.
“One thing I know is that hard work pays and you must keep faith in God; power belongs to God and He alone gives to whoever he will.”
The former Minister of #State for Industry, Trade and Investment said he dropped out of secondary school due to lack of funds to pay school fees but that he did not go astray or engage in criminal activities to survive.
Ortom, however, alleged that some party leaders manipulated the delegate list of the People Democratic Party for the last April election in the state to thwart his bid to become the state governor.
He said, “The process of selection of delegates in the last #PDP governorship election was manipulated by the leadership of the party to thwart my ambition and frustrate the people who all supported me. But God vindicated me and blessed me, and now, I am an elected governor.”
