Gov Ortom reacts

The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has refuted reports that he was set to dump the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the All Progressives Congress, APC. In a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, Governor Ortom maintained that he enjoys a robust relationship with other PDP leaders and members at the state and national levels.

Governor Ortom, however, stressed that his visit to the President on Monday was to discuss State matters, particularly to give him an update on the security situation in his state and the efforts the Government is making to guarantee peace in all parts of the state as well as its borders with other states such as Taraba and Ebonyi.

He also said in a statement that “We wish to advise those spreading the rumour and misleading people to know that President Buhari is not an APC President. He is the President of the whole Nigeria across party divides. He is the Commander-in-Chief of the country’s armed forces and receives periodic briefings from State Governors and other stakeholders. ”The Benue electorate has also indicated clearly from the results of the last general election that the PDP remains their preferred political party. Governor Ortom always stand with his people and this, he will continue to do.
