Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State says he would have worked for the success of the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi if he were not a member of the Peoples Democratic Party.
Ortom said this on Wednesday when he hosted the former Anambra State governor at his private residence in Abuja.
He said, “I’m in PDP and I am working for PDP but I tell you if I were not in PDP, you will see me working for Peter Obi but I am in PDP. Let’s see how things work our but the truth is that the Bible says a man can receive nothing except it is given it to him,”
According to Ortom, Obi may not have the wherewithal but if God decides no one can stop it.
He identified Obi, Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress and PDP’s Atiku Abubakar of the PDP as the three frontline candidates and urged Nigerians to elect the best among them without any sentiments.
Ortom also urged Obi, Atiku and Tinubu to meet and agree on one of them.
