I’ve not dumped PDP for APC – Ortom

2 Min Read

Former Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has denied dumping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

He said he remains in the PDP, noting that the APC has not invited him to join it.

Ortom spoke at the expanded exco meeting of the party on Monday.

The ex-governor urged PDP members to unite to overcome the party’s loss in the 2023 general election.

Ortom equally denied the reported feud between him and his predecessor, Gabriel Suswam, and Senate Minority Leader, Senator Abba Moro.

“There is no need to apportion blame. The elections have come and gone. We must draw a line and forge ahead.

“PDP is the only party that is strong and receptive to the yearnings of the people. With our new commitment, we will make the party more vibrant for tomorrow.

“We shall succeed in future elections. I do not have any friction with Moro and Suswam.”

He added, “The rumours that I’m decamping to APC. I’m not going anywhere, this one that they are calling me the leader of the party in the state which comes with lots of responsibilities. I will not leave it for anybody.

“APC has not invited me to join it; I’m not a busybody who will be moving from one place to another. I’m committed to my party (PDP). We must respect the party at all times. Let us strategise to return to power. Now is the time to plan. We must plan ahead of them as they did in 2023.”
