Governor Samuel Ortom has directed the Benue State University (BSU) to offer admission to Miss Goodness Thomas, who scored 302 in UTME but denied admission at the Amadu Bello University, ABU,

It was widely speculated that Thomas is an indigene of Niger State was denied admission at ABU because she is a Christian.

Based on the report, Igbinedion University had early this week offered her admission to study medicine with full scholarship in the school.

Now, Governor Ortom has repeated the same gesture by offering Miss Thomas a provisional admission to Benue State University with full scholarship.
