Gov Ortom Speaks On Alleged Rift With PDP National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu, Others

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has dismissed reports that he was at loggerheads with the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dr Iyorchia Ayu.

Speaking during a meeting with all his political appointees from 14 local government areas of the state, the Benue governor debunked claiming he is not on good terms with the PDP chairman.

Ortom, who is the chairman of the party’s zoning committee ahead of the 2023 general election, said those spending the fake stories will end up being disappointed.

He also denied any rift with former Senate President, David Mark and a former governor of the North-Central state, Gabriel Suswam.

“I have no single problem with our national chairman, Senator Ayu, our leader, Senator David Mark, Senators Abba Moro, Gabriel Suswam, Orker Jev or any leader of the party.

“We are consulting with one another without rancour. So there is no truth whatsoever in such rumours,” Ortom said.
