Shocking: See how a Catholic Priest disgraced Benue state Governor.

The Priest of St. Christopher's Catholic Church, Wannune, in Tarka Local Government Area of Benue state, David Mzer, on Wednesday was accounted for to have embarrassed the state delegate, Samuel Ortom, over unpaid workers' compensation rates.

The event happened in the midst of the thanksgiving mass of ex-agent George Akume, who recognized his 64th birthday festivity.

Sun Newspaper reports that a spectator, who talked under mystery, said Fr. Mzer, a young Priest,  while passing on his sermon at the mass had requested that Akume give quality direction to Governor Ortom on statecraft, including the issues of remunerations.

The witness incorporated that: "After Holy Communion and before the complete of mass, the Parish Priest requested Senator Akume to make his remarks. The Senator tended to two or three issues including a couple of elucidations on the compensation matter and requested that Governor Ortom be allowed to similarly make brief remarks.

"Right when the congressperson got hold of the beneficiary and started with welcome, the Parish Priest uncovered from a shortage and announced that he (Ortom) was not allowed to talk.

"Ortom, who was as shocked as the get together asked the Priest what he said and he reiterated that the congressperson was not allowed to talk in the gathering. The representative gave the mouthpiece to the Priest and retreated to his seat."

The witness uncovered that the change began an incite uproar from the social affair the lion's share of who plainly protested the remarks.

He also said that in light of the reaction of the gatherers, the priest quickly passed on the mass to an end and as he was leaving, he pass by the dignitaries and communicated that he just agreed to the request of the Bishop of the Diocese not to empower the congressperson to talk.

Meanwhile, the agent, in a visit with newsmen after the mass, said he kept up longstanding ill will with the demand of the Bishop and did not want to join issues with the pastorate.

On his part, Akume condemned the action raising that the agent justified see as Chief Executive of the state who had the benefit to chat with his kinfolk even in house of prayer as has been the custom with each one of the governors of the state.

Regardless, in a declaration set apart by Ortom's Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, and made open to reporters on Thursday, the representative uncovered instances of breaks among himself and the Gboko Catholic Diocese, concentrating on that he is God-fearing and would not appreciate animosity with the Church.

He moreover said he fathomed and respects the decision of Gboko Catholic Diocese not to empower government authorities to talk in the midst of masses and hence would not have felt offended when the Priest in Charge of the Wannune Parish did not enable him to talk in the midst of the mass according to the decision of the Diocese.

"We energize those opening up the event and advancing red hot articulations for political inspirations to sheathe their swords Governor Ortom is a God-fearing pioneer who submits himself to Christian authorities and has huge regard for the Catholic Church particularly. He won't allow the genuine relationship he has worked with the gathering during the time to be jeopardized," the declaration read to some degree.
