The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has criticised the Presidential Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar over his treatment of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.
In a contemporary interview on Arise TV, Ortom mentioned that is an insult for the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar to sent representatives to Wike, who was the runner-up in the party’s Presidential primaries instead of reaching out to him personally.
“It’s an insult for Atiku Abubakar to send people to a powerful mobiliser like Wike.”
“Atiku offended Wike. It is an insult for Atiku to send people to call Wike. Atiku and the leadership of the party at all levels must visit him, Wike is a strong pillar in PDP.”
“Why can’t Atiku visit Wike personally? I am confused about what’s going on…I have resorted to fasting and prayers for God to direct me on my next move.”
He stated that Wike was responsible to resurrecting the Party.
“Where were these people when the party was going down? Wike brought the party back to life. No person has contributed more than Wike in positioning the party,”.
He called on the party to quickly mobilize and go and appeal to the South-South Governor.
