2023: Ortom provides update on Atiku-Wike reconciliation

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has said Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2023 election, has listened to his counsel with regard to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that speaking in an interview aired last Friday on Arise TV, Atiku said he picked who could deliver (Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta State) over Wike.

Ortom, an ally of Wike, had been critical of the former Nigerian Vice-President over his relationship with the Rivers State governor after the PDP primary election where Wike emerged second.

Fielding questions from newsmen at the Benue State Government House, Makurdi, on Monday, Ortom stated that the supposed fall out between Wike and Atike is being resolved.

“I don’t want to answer questions on that agai,” Ortom said.

“My presidential candidate has acceded to my advice. I wouldn’t want to contradict my presidential candidate.

“Whatever happens rightly or wrongly, I accept it. We’re the same family; we will find a way of resolving our matter.”

  1. Ortom, mark my word, Rivers people looth that name you mentioned with the Rivers state governor. I tell you the truth, Rivers will not listen to advice of the governor on who to vote for in presidential elections. We are enlightened and we have been following events.

  2. WHICHEVER SPIRIT GOVERNOR Ortom MET AND CONSULTED WITH DURING HIS LIP SERVICE HIBERNATION MUST BE SOMEWATH OF AN EPHEMERAL AND OR AN APPARITION.

    His sojourn in the land of the spirits appears unfavourable and disheartening and not too good for his soul.

    INDECISION AND NOT BEING RESOLUTE ARE PART OF REASONS WE ARE WHERE WE ARE AS A NATION, CURRENTLY. IN THE WOODS.

    To even imagine that this little spirit governor Ortom heaps all the BLAMES of everything that goes wrong in and with Benue state on the sitting President Buhari. Suddenly, Governor Ortom has become an apostle and mouthpiece of Governor Wike. The boy-boy of another mate governor.

    GOVERNOR Ortom may have to go back to the BUSH for an appraisal and or another round of consultation with his apparition beings.
