Reacting, Ortom said the online report is fake and should be disregarded.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Special Adviser, Media and Publicity to the Governor, Terver Akase, on Tuesday.

 

According to the statement, the report is false and mischievous as it is targeted at embarrassing the five governors who have chosen the path of justice, fairness, and equity.

It further disclosed that Governor Ortom, at a meeting with the state caucus of the PDP yesterday, maintained that the national leadership of the party had failed to utilize its internal conflict resolution mechanism, which has led to the crisis rocking the party.

The report is not only false but also mischievous as it is targeted at embarrassing the five governors who have chosen the path of justice, fairness, and equity.

Manufacturers of the said report were apparently on a desperate mission to score a cheap political point. The report could not mention the place and date of the said meeting of G-5 Governors. The writers only sought to take advantage of the crisis within the PDP for their selfish purposes. Governor Ortom and other members of the G-5 have not endorsed the said presidential candidate.

“When the Governor met with the expanded state caucus of PDP yesterday, January 9, 2023, at the Benue Peoples House, Makurdi, his message to them was crystal clear that the national leadership of PDP has failed to utilize its internal conflict resolution mechanism, which has led to the crisis rocking the party. The governor said during the meeting that if the crisis is not resolved before the elections, he would be left with no other option than to take a stand on the matter. He added, however, that he wouldn’t impose his decision on members of the party in the state.
