G5: Ortom Claims That PDP Is Not Sincere About Reconciliation

by Echezona obinna

On Thursday, Samuel Ortom, the governor of Benue State, alleged that the leadership of the People’s Democratic Party, which is led by Iyorchia Ayu, was not sincere in its efforts to reach an agreement with the governors who had been wronged.

He added that if the efforts at reconciliation fall short, the party leadership should be held accountable. He claimed that the Ayu-led excos were failing to implement the proper policies to satisfy the G5 governors’ desire.

In a Thursday interview with journalists, Ortom revealed this. According to ANAEDOONLINE.NG, the G5 governors are Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State, Ikeazu Ikpeazu of Abia, Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Seyi Makinde of Oyo, and Ortom of Abia.

“So, no efforts by the leadership of our party have been able to address the issues that we are raising. They have not been able to adopt methods that will pacify and placate the G5. This is not right. So, on the G5, that is where we are.
“Arrogance, impunity, mischief, will not really help matters. One will expect that humility, it is said that you stoop down to conquer even if you want to make it,” Ortom said.
He pointed out that the leadership of the PDP should have been proactive and humble in addressing members’ grievances.

“There are many ways if you have proactive leadership, a leadership that is humble. But when you treat people like they call us that ‘they are children’. I mean, a man of 62, how is he a child? A man at 50, how is he a child? But none of us are less than 40 years. We are leaders in our own right. Our people elected us. You can’t just sit in Abuja and make this kind of a thing.
“We are committed to issues of integrity, issues of fairness, equity, and justice.”

He added, “I think we are on course as far as I’m concerned with our group (G5). As faithful party men, we have given enough time. And we are told that the failed leadership at the national level will take advantage of the opportunity we have given them to address those issues.

“There are many ways of addressing issues even when you are not able to meet the demands of a group or individuals. But when people decide to be arrogant, and mischievous and do things as if the other person does not exist and try to do some things with impunity, as if they have won the election, and they don’t need any other person, it becomes a problem.”
