The state was thrown into wild jubilation.Shouts of joy could be heard ringing through the air from the plains of Ado to the riverbanks of Makurdi. People surged into Dr. Samuel Ortom residence to celebrate with him. In his remark he attributed his success first to God and then to the hard pressed and hard working people of the great state of Benue. He broke into a dance.
