2023: I’m still consulting with God on whether to run for senate, says Ortom

By NAN



Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue, says he is yet to take a decision on whether he will contest for a seat in the senate in the 2023 elections.


According to NAN, Ortom said this on Saturday while speaking with journalists.


Responding to a question on if he will contest after completing his tenure as governor, Ortom said he will take the decision in line with what God permits.


“I am still consulting with God because I do not take any decision without consulting my God. If he says yes, I will go ahead and contest, but if He says no, I will obey his decision,” he said.


The governor also said reports of division in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) should be ignored, as members have been working in unity.


“PDP as a party made mistakes in the past and has learnt a lot of lessons from its mistakes and it is fully prepared to take over the leadership of the country from the APC,” he said.


“Nobody should deceive you that PDP is polarised. We are working together as a party.


“We met and agreed that the positions which are currently in the north should go to the south, while those in the south should go to the north.


“This is the resolution of the zoning committee and it is graciously accepted at the national level.


“Nobody has begrudged the decision. It is widely accepted by all PDP members.”
