Nigeria: Samuel Ortom Finally Defects to PDP

Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom has finally announced his defection from APC to PDP. He had days back announced that the party had given him the red card and that he was not yet committed to another party.

He however later came back to say that he was back with the party as the party leadership had handled the issue that was the bone of contention.

Before the announcement today, Benue Youths had blocked the government house, barring the governor from leaving fro Abuja where he was to attend a reconciliation meeting organized by the APC. Following the incident, the governor announced during a meeting with the state’s local government chairmen and Councillors a short while back that he was defecting to PDP.

Yesterday, Benue State was in the news as the state house of assembly impeached the speaker, Mr. Terkimbi Ikyange.

With the incessant killings in the state, the governor had for months now been at logger heads with the APC led Federal Government, fueling rumours that the governor will return to PDP from where he defected to APC.

      What about Kano State? And the Senator that defected don’t they matter?

      Governor Ganduje will never defect to PDP. APC still having 2 senators and 30 reps seat in kano. Ganduje is the governor not kwankwaso.

      Welcome,you might not like Buhari but it is very obvious that he will come back to Aso rock in 2019. Take it or leave it. Just note my stand today.

      Timothy Opeyemi Adeoti I don’t doubt that Buhari can come back at all. In fact, the indicators show that he is likely to come back but certainly not through the votes of Nigerians. It will be by rigging and a show of force. Note my stand today.
