‘Ortom An Errand Boy To Gov Wike’ – APC


The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has been accused of abandoning his constitutional responsibilities of providing governance to support the political activities of the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.

The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State, Austin Agada in a chat with Punch said Ortom had reduced himself to an errand boy to Governor Wike.

Agada noted that there had been setbacks in the state because Ortom abandoned the state to pursue his interest.

He said, “He (Ortom) had long ago attached himself to Wike; this is responsible for his abysmal performance in the past seven years. He has abandoned governance which is the reason everything is in total decay. He is a disaster to Benue State, he has become an errand boy or may I call him deputy to Wike or an aide to Wike; that is the reason you always see him going around with Wike.”


The Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Joseph Ogli while speaking on Ortom’s leadership in the state said, “I don’t know if it is the tradition of the Peoples Democratic Party to be gallivanting and not sit in their state.

“But I promise you, APGA can not behave like that. Leaving the state and following another governor is not in our character and if by the grace of God, our party wins the forthcoming governorship election, our candidate, Joseph Waya, will not descend to that level but rather will face governance.”

The governorship candidate of the Labour Party in the state, Herman Hembe, said if he wins the 2023 governorship election, his priority would be to meet the yearnings of the people.


Hembe said, “As for me, I am focusing on how to lift my people from underdevelopment. I will focus on the payment of salaries to workers and pensioners and pay more attention to providing employment to the teaming youths.”
