Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue State has appointed Mr Nathaniel Ikyur as his new Chief Press Secretary (CPS).

The development which was disclosed on Tuesday followed the resignation of Mr Terver Akase who exited the government to focus on his 2023 governorship ambition.

Recall that Akase tendered his resignation letter on September 30 as directed by the governor who stated that his political appointees contesting for public offices in the 2023 general elections must resign by September ending.

Before his appointment as CPS, Ikyur served as Principal Special Assistant to Ortom on Media.

Similarly, Ortom appointed Mr Charles Iornumbe as Director-General of Radio Benue.

Until his appointment, Iornumbe was serving as the Radio Benue Correspondent in Government House, Makurdi.
