Ortom: PDP Is Stopping Me From Working For Peter Obi

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Wednesday said he would have worked for the success of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi if he were not a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.

Ortom made this known on Wednesday when he hosted the former Anambra State governor at his private residence in Abuja.

The Benue governor and top member of the PDP is an ally of Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State as well as three other governors who have been calling for PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, to step down for a southerner.


From and members of the Wike’s camp have not been seen at the rallies of the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, casting doubt on whether the governors will back Atiku or another candidate in next February’s election which has been described by analysts as a three-horse race among Obi, Atiku and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress.
