Governor Ortom also noted that the APC-led has failed to deliver on promises made to Nigerians in 2015 regarding the economy and security, claiming that this is reason enough for the people to vote the party out in 2023.

He explained that instead of dealing with the Boko Haram threat, which was the country’s only security threat at the time, the APC took power, and the situation has since escalated to include armed herdsmen attacks, banditry, and kidnapping.


The Governor stated specifically that the people of Kwande have no business being members of the APC because the only federal project approved for the area, a polytechnic, was taken away by the state’s APC leader.

Senator for the North East, Dr. Gabriel Suswam, said Mrs. Adzape-entry Orubibi’s into the PDP has boosted the party’s chances, while state PDP Chairman, Sir John Ngbede, assured defectors of equal opportunities.

Mrs. Margaret Icheen, a member of the PDP Board of Trustees, Mr. Bob Tyough, a member of the House of Representatives for Kwande Ushongo, and Tertsea Gbishe, Assembly for Kwande West, all said that with Mrs Orubibi’s defection, the APC was dead in Kwande.

Mrs Orubibi, speaking on behalf of the defectors, which included former APC chairman for Kwande, Mr. Iorfa Dzoho, attributed her decision to leave the APC to the party’s inability to solve the country’s economic and security challenges at the national level.

BIRS, the former chairman of the state Board of Internal Revenue Service, also stated that her decision to join the PDP was motivated by her desire to work with Governor Samuel Ortom, who gave her the opportunity to serve Benue as BIRS chairman in order to help the state develop.

At the Adikpo event, thousands of APC members from Kwande, Ushongo, and other parts of Benue North East defected to the PDP.
