The former governor of Benue State Samuel Ortom has dismissed a rumour that he is set to dump the Peoples Democratic Party (,PDP) for all Progressives Congress (APC).

Ortom, who disclosed this during the PDP expanded caucus meeting in Makurdi, Benue State, said such rumours are inimal, stressing that he has no plan whatsoever to leave (PDP) which he has built for years.

Recall that the former governor, is the leader of the G-5 PDP governor’s who worked against the PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, in the 2023 election.

Speaking in the meeting, Ortom said, “We as leaders of the party, we have no issues and we are calling on all the party members to work in unity to ensure that the party bounces back to return power to the people which is the slogan of the party”.

He said, “We as stakeholders, we will expose anyone found peddling unsolicited rumour, advert and gossip aimed at dividing stakeholders to serve as deterrent to would be monglers”

He, however stressed the need for the PDP to be united to overcome the defeat of 2023, adding that there was no need to apportion blame.

On the forthcoming PDP Local Government and Ward congesses, Ortom said there will be no imposition of candidates of their choice.

“We want to allow people to give us a candidate of their choice, and I want to say here that PDP is the only opposition party that is firm and from now onwards we will make the party more vibrant and strong through our unity and with these we will succeed in subsequent elections”.

The Senate majority leader, Abba Moro, and former governor of the state, Senator Gabriel Suswam, who were both at the meeting also reiterated their commitment to the party.
