ORTOM SEEKS TO GET PDP TICKET TO BE ELECTED FOR A SECOND TERM


Nine out of the 12 members of Benue State PDP who are hoping to become the state’s governor in 2019 met with Ortom, who recently defected from the APC to the PDP, and is seeking to get the PDP ticket to be elected for a second term in office.


Dr Tivlumun Nyitse, a Peoples Democratic Party governorship aspirant in Benue State,  has revealed what transpired during the meeting.

According to Nyitse, Ortom, at the meeting, told the PDP governorship aspirants that he had the intention to run for a second term.

“At the meeting, he told us that he was back to the PDP and that he too wanted to run. We told him he was welcome and that he should toe the line.”

He also pointed out that the party must remember that the other 12 aspirants had remained in the PDP when Ortom left for the APC.
 “Ortom can’t eat there (APC) and come back to also take other people’s food. These people have laboured so hard and remain committed to the party till now. People have worked for the party all this while and then you come back and take what belongs to them.

 “Ortom is going to run like every other aspirant in the primaries and if he wins, so be it; nobody is going to step down for him. 

“I don’t know what the national leadership of the party is thinking towards the candidature of Ortom but we in PDP in Benue would not allow any decision not palatable to stand.”
