The Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has said he has no plan to return to the All Progressives Congress (APC), which he left for the Peoples Democractic Party (PDP) to win a second term as Benue governor.
In a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary (CPS), Mr Terver Akase on Thursday in Makurdi, she said the Governor was contacted by some notable persons to dump the PDP, of which he declined the invitation.
The statement reads: “We have read some mischievous statements by members of the opposition in Benue State, insinuating that Gov. Samuel Ortom plans to rejoin All Progressives Congress (APC)”.
“Those involved in the impish allegation are clearly doing so to soothe their stuck-up apprehensions”.
“Why will Gov. Ortom return to APC? To do what?”
The statement further explained that Ortom, who is the leader of the PDP in the North Central, had robust relationship with other leaders of the party within the region and needed not to leave the party.
“It is, therefore, ridiculous for anyone to insinuate that the governor has the intention to leave PDP.”
The Governor, however advised the young men spreading rumour to take advantage of the numerous entrepreneurial opportunities the Ortom led administration had created to engage in rewarding ventures and shun falsehood.
