I also wish to once again thank you for all the support I got personally from each one of you. Today as I leave the Keepers position, I look back with pride and humility to how much this group has achieved.”
Mr. Akula while thanking numerous partners of the group who had shown faith in the Group noted that the Group couldn’t have grown this far without their support.
He then disclosed that “today BHG has entrenched the tradition of transparency and accountability in the area of the use of private resources in our clime! Our leadership in the tourism sector of Benue is unquestionable, what we seek to achieve is not debatable, and with God on our side, we will.”
All through his leadership as the Outgoing Keeper, Mr. Tersoo Samson Akula, was able to achieve a lot of breakthroughs that are worthy to mention but a few are Night Hike, Chappal Waddi expedition, and the numerous records it has set; excursion to Jos, family Holiday to Obudu, Ibila Hike in Oju, Eldorado picnic, Mural Fest, Elder’s Groove. His supremacy as The Keeper has branded Benue Hike Group as a household name in Benue State and beyond.
