If I were not in PDP, you will see me working for Peter Obi – Governor Ortom

The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has said that he would have worked for the success of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi, if he were not a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

Governor Ortom disclosed this on Wednesday when he hosted Obi at his private residence in Abuja.

Recall that the Benue governor and other top members of the PDP, along Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State and three other governors have been calling for the resignation of the party’s National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu.

They are demanding that Ayu steps down for a southerner.

Ortom’s statement has added to the swelling doubt on whether some of the aggrieved members of his party will back Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate, in the forthcoming general election.

He said: “the front runners of this 2023 presidential election – the three of them, from PDP (my party), the APC and the Labour Party, let us look at these three people who has the capacity to deliver and make things work for our country.

“Let us be factual, let us be frank with ourselves because we are toying with our future. A country of over 200 million people deserve a better leadership that is proactive, that has foresight, that has vision to make things work for our country.

“I am in PDP, and I am working for PDP, and I tell you, If I were not in PDP, you would see me working for Peter Obi. But I am in PDP… lets see how things work out”.

Meanwhile, Obi said he called to commiserate with Ortom on the ravages of the floods in Benue State resulting in high loss of lives, property and farmlands and massive displacement.
