The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, said President Muhammadu Buhari and his ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), have kept their promise to take Nigeria from top to bottom.
This was contained in a statement signed by the governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Nathaniel Ikyur, Ortom said, “As a people, Nigerians need to have a viable alternative to the current crop of leaders among the ruling party.”
Ortom said, “They (APC) have kept their promise to take Nigeria from top to bottom. They have taken our country beneath the bottom. It’s a big shame. For us in the PDP, the onus rests on us to mend the cracks in our party. No external influence will do that for us. By the grace of God, we will reach a successful end so that we can move on.
While speaking on the challenges facing the APC chance for the forthcoming general elections. Samuel Ortom, “So long as INEC is as professional and neutral as it was in Osun and Ekiti states, I don’t see the APC winning the elections.
Ortom said his over 40 years of experience in grassroots politics and even at the state and national levels had shown that the APC cannot win the 2023 polls.”
