Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers has donated 25 buses to the campaign team of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Benue, according to Governor Samuel Ortom
Mr Ortom, who disclosed this on Tuesday in Makurdi during the inauguration of the party’s campaign council, said that each of the 23 local governments would get a bus.
“Wike has also promised to be in Makurdi for the flag-off of the campaigns slated for Monday,” Mr Ortom said.
He thanked Wike for always standing with Benue people both in good and bad moments.
He said that if the Presidential candidate of the party addresses the challenges rocking the party, all PDP members would work together to rescue Nigeria, declaring that he had no issues with any candidate of the party.
He encouraged the national leadership of the party to listen to the voice of reason and address the burning issues raised by the five governors.
“All I and my colleagues want is for the committee of the whole house to address the issues holistically.
“If the issues that the five governors raised are not resolved, I cannot guarantee what will happen during the presidential election,” he said.
The Acting Chairman of the party in the state, Isaac Mffo, assured the gathering that PDP would win the 2023 polls, stressing that the party had no opposition in Benue.
Dr Cletus Tyokyaa, Director General of the Campaign Council, who spoke on behalf of the members, said that everything would be done to market the candidates toward victory.
“Now that we have been inaugurated, we will set the ball rolling in order to achieve great results,” Mr Tyokyaa assured.
The state Woman Leader, Ewaje Egwa, appreciated Mr Ortom for giving women a lot of appointments and supporting their political ambitions.
Ediga Akpa is the Secretary of the council while Bemgba Iortyom is Director, Media and Publicity, among others.
