As the 2023 general election draws nearer diverse political machinations are shaping the polity which is creating fusion amongst political gladiators in Nigeria.
EAGLE EYE WATCH revealed that in Benue State North-Central Nigeria,the State Governor, Samuel Ortom has refuted an online media report alleging a split in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) over the ongoing consultation towards consensus candidates for the forthcoming elections.
A statement by his chief press secretary Nathaniel Ikyur Ortom said he will not ordinarily give attention to such unfounded gossip or accord its response with an official seal but for the sake of the less knowledgeable about the political dynamics of Benue state.
“For the avoidance of doubt, all stakeholders in the PDP family led by Governor Ortom have been meeting and consulting on all elective positions and the best way possible to produce candidates for the 2023 elections. This is to avoid rancour and maintain a harmonious political family”.
He went further to express shock at media reports alleging a split in the party’s ranks.
The Governor insists that the PDP in Benue is united and working in one accord adding that those trying to insinuate disaffection amongst its leaders will be disappointed, as according to him, the PDP will come out from this exercise stronger and better prepared for victory in the 2023 general election.
