Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom pledged on Thursday that he will stay in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Recall that Atiku chose Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa as his running mate after declaring himself the PDP’s presidential candidate.
The former Vice President had disregarded the committee’s suggestions for choosing his running companion.
Wike, who finished second in the party’s primary election, had been recommended by the 16-man committee.
According to Governor Samuel Ortom, Wike is upset because Atiku and the PDP are not treating him with the respect he deserves, which has sparked rumors that the Rivers Governor will leave the PDP and join the APC (APC).
In the midst of the defection rumors, Wike met with a few APC governors.
The Benue Governor spoke on the conflict saying: “I want to assure Nigerians that we are PDP members and we would not leave for any other political party.
“We anticipate the party’s leadership unifying and bringing us all together. We will proceed once our Presidential candidate meets with Governor Wike and appeases him, thank God.
The Presidential candidate of our great party has contacted me to arrange a meeting with my brother and friend, Governor Wike.
“I was in hibernation, but I’m out now, thank God, and this is my stance.

Governor Wike is my Friend Even when my state was under siege by homicidal herdsmen, he stood beside me.
He has done a lot for our party and for me, and he supported me morally and financially. I don’t betray people, thus I think our party’s leadership (PDP) should get in touch with him.
