THE Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, on Monday, declared that the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, had failed to use its internal mechanism to resolve the crisis rocking the party.
He said that ignoring the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and his team poses a great danger for the party. Ortom stated this during the party stakeholders meeting held at the new banquet hall of government house, Makurdi.
The governor insisted that the national leadership of the party should address the injustices meted out to Wike and other members of the party. Ortom said that attempt to ignore the Rivers State governor or anyone of the team, may spell doom for the party.
“If you dismiss us and say you do not need us, I believe that will be dangerous. I want the party to address the injustices so that as we move into the elections, we will work together and we will have no crisis.”
He added, “There is injustice that has been meted to my friend Wike, because he stood for the party and supported it to the end.
“The leadership of the party should do the needful to resolve the problem and not to shove people around as though they are not relevant. Everyone is relevant and one vote can make one fail at the elections.
“The leadership at the national level should do more. Politics is interest and what is the interest if not our state and our people. What do I tell my people in Benue?”
He further said, “National PDP failed to use its internal mechanism to resolve crisis rocking the party.
Speaking on the caucus meeting, Ortom said the stakeholders meeting was to discuss the formation of the campaign council of the state.
The governor said that APC had been belittled in the state, adding that PDP is poised to win all elective positions in the forthcoming elections.
