UPDATE: ‘I’m Not Decamping To APC’ – Ortom Reveals

by Victor Ndubuisi

Samuel Ortom, the former governor of Benue State, has denied rumours that he defected to the All Progressives Congress, or APC.

Speaking on Monday at the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) extended executive meeting, Ortom declared that he is still a party member.

According to Ortom: “The rumours that I’m decamping to APC, I’m not going anywhere; this one that they are calling me the leader of the party in the state which comes with lots of responsibilities, I will not leave it for anybody.

“APC has not invited me to join it. I am not a busybody who will be moving from one place to another, I am committed to my party (PDP). We must respect the party at all times. Let us strategise to return to power. Now is the time to plan, we must plan ahead of them as they did in 2023.”


Additionally, Ortom refuted rumours that he had disagreements with Senator Abba Moro and former governor Gabriel Suswam.

“PDP is the only party that is strong and receptive to the yearnings of the people. With our new commitment, we will make the party more vibrant for tomorrow.

“We shall succeed in future elections. I do not have any friction with Moro and Suswam,” he added.
