Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom on Tuesday revealed that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) will reposition and rebuild Nigeria from all its security and economic challenges inflicted by the All Progressive Congress-led government.
The Governor who addressed the media after arriving at Makurdi Airport from Bauchi, where he attended the PDP Governors’ Forum meeting reiterated the party stance to make Nigeria great again if elected in 2023.
Ortom noted that a series of meetings the PDP Governors’ Forum had held across the country were meant to reposition the party, instil hope and confidence in Nigerians that if given another opportunity, they could take the country out of the woods.
He added that the internal wranglings within the PDP would not limit its chances of winning elections in 2023, pointing out that it was natural to have misunderstood but being able to manage the same was paramount.
He further disclosed that the Governors had agreed that the current APC-led Federal Government has failed Nigerians in all ramifications and should therefore give way to PDP to fix the country.
The Governor advised the Federal Government against intimidating Nigerians, citing the incident involving Bishop Matthew Kukah of Sokoto Catholic Diocese who he noted, was being castigated for speaking out his mind about happenings in the country under President Muhammadu Buhari.
He noted that as one who has been worried about the state of affairs in the country and being on the same page with the Bishop, he could not have captured what the clergyman said better than him and advised the Federal Government to rather heed the voice of reason.
On the allegation that he has taken sides over the Bonta-Ukpute communal crisis, Governor Ortom said those accusing him should be ready with facts to prove or face the consequence of their accusations in a competent court of law, adding that, he was meeting with stakeholders tomorrow to find a permanent solution to the crisis.
