I Have No PARTY, Governor Ortom States AGAIN
Lol. Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom said he has not declared for any political party despite the flooding of Makurdi with his campaign posters for the 2019 governorship on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Barely 24 hours after Ortom said the All Progressives Congress (APC) gave him a red card, his campaign posters bearing the PDP symbol for 2019 governorship race took over the streets of Makurdi, the capital.
The posters were put in strategic places alongside the earlier ones with APC symbol, but they did not bear the picture of Deputy Governor Benson Abounu.
But in a telephone interview with The Nation, Ortom said he was yet to declare for any political party.
He said: “Like I said earlier, I have been given a red card and I’m without a party. Maybe those who want to sign me are behind the posters, but I am yet to join any party.”
This is coming after new APC chairman, Adams Oshiomhole says, Ortom was still part of the party.
