2019!!! Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, Speaks On Dumping APC For PDP, Makes Nationwide Declaration


2019!!! Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, Speaks On Dumping APC For PDP, Makes Nationwide Declaration

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has reacted to reports suggesting that he was planning to dump the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, before 2019.

Governor Ortom had last week, declared that he has suspended all forms of political campaigns ahead of 2019, as a result of the bloody clash between herdsmen and armless farmers in the State.
The statement had been interpreted in some quarters to mean that the Governor was set to dump the APC for PDP.
In a swift reaction however, the Governor who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Terve Akase, declared that there is no way he could contemplate decamping to a dead political party.
According to him: “How can someone even think of that? There is no plan whatsoever for the Governor to join a dead party. PDP is a dead party.
“The APC portrays the standard of leadership of the Governor who works tirelessly to make sure his people are secured in their communities.
“No one is talking about party now. What everyone is concerned about is the welfare and security of the people.
“Everyone is working to see how to bring the current crisis and killing of innocent citizens to an end, and the Governor has the massive support of Benue people.
“So tell me, why will the Governor decamp to PDP? Benue people are well behind their Governor, and what is important to everyone now is the restoration of peace in communities in the State.”
