Governor Ortom Makes U-Turn, Says He Remains APC Member
Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has reversed his earlier decision to dump the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
Ortom made the U-turn on Thursday after a meeting he had with the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.
The Governor, in a chat with newsmen, said the party’s leadership assured him that no individual in Benue state could push him out of the party.
He said: “I was given a red card by a Senator but the leadership of the party told me that the decision of the party leadership at the national level is superior to any individual and I think that is good enough.
“We have spoken to him, he has spoken to me, stakeholders are going to be spoken to and that is where I belong. We have not concluded the matter, it is an ongoing process because I have always stood for peace and I always want peace to prevail.
“I appreciate the intervention and I hope that we would be able to resolve the matter of differences and this is the funny thing about politics.
“I am here in APC, a member of APC, I’m still flying the flag of APC and I only said I was given a red card but I have been corrected by the national chairman.”
