Governor Samuel Ortom has assured the people of Benue South senatorial district that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) administration would work hard to ensure that Benue is better.
This is even as the senator representing Benue South senatorial district Abba Moro dismissed comments credited to him on the PDP crisis at the national level.
Speaking at the flag-off of the PDP senatorial campaigns in Benue South, Moro said he never made any comment, either directly or indirectly during the inauguration of his campaign council as credited to him.
“I believe that the governor as the leader of the party, has the capacity to resolve issues within the party in Benue State and even as a leader in the G-5, he has the capacity together with his colleagues to ensure that the right thing is done and all parties to the crisis in PDP do the needful to make sure that we go into 2023 as united forces of PDP to win the election.
“I’ll never assume the duty of the leader of the party in Benue state and I have restrained myself from commenting on the crisis in the PDP, believing that our leaders know the right thing to do at the appropriate time,” he stated.
“I want to say here that, whatever is happening at the national level is left for those people who are playing national politics to resolve the matter. And if they don’t resolve it, I will call you and I will inform you and ask you what direction we will go,” he added.
Governor Ortom while speaking commended the people of Benue South for their commitment to the party and promised that those elected on the platform of the party will continue to do their best to bring development to the state.
“You have done us well, you have given us support and the only thing, we can pay back to you is to ensure that we work to ensure that Benue State is better and that is what we are doing.”
The governor expressed satisfaction with the patriotism and commitment to the PDP by Benue South and reiterated that the party was one indivisible platform in the state that was committed to winning all its elections.
In his words, “Let me tell you, PDP is a serious business in Benue state. By the grace of God, we are going to win all our elections. We are one indivisible body that is committed to the winning of our party, the PDP, because APC has failed this nation,” Governor Ortom told the teeming supporters.
The governor who decried that the state has been marginalized despite his administration’s commitment to development enjoined the people to vote for PDP candidates whom he noted were committed to the collective good of the state.
Senator representing Benue North-East, Dr. Gabriel Suswam, in his goodwill message said, he had come to give solidarity to Senator Moro whom he described as a “Prominent son of Zone C, a grassroots politician and a voice that cannot be ignored in the Senate and politics of Nigeria.”
