From Scholastica Onyeka, Makurdi
Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has boasted that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would win all positions contested for in next year’s polls.
He stated this at the flag-off of the PDP senatorial campaigns in Benue South held at Pavilion Square in Oju Local Government Area of the state.
Addressing party supporters from the nine local government areas of the zone, Ortom said: “Let me tell you that PDP is a serious business in Benue State. By the grace of God, we are going to win all our elections. We are one indivisible body that is committed to the winning of our party, the PDP, because APC has failed this nation.”
The governor who decried that the state has been marginalised despite his administration’s commitment to its development, enjoined the people to vote for PDP candidates whom he noted were committed to the collective good of the state.
He assured the people of Benue South that the continuity of the PDP administration in the state would further improve conditions of lives in the state and urged them to work hard not deliver the party.
Ortom appreciated the people of Benue South for their commitment and support to the party and promised that those elected on the platform of the party would continue to do their best to bring development to the state.
Senator representing Benue South Senatorial district, Abba Moro, who is seeking re-election enumerated his achievements and urged his people to support his re-election. He also appealed for the resolution of the crisis in the PDP to enable them go into the election with a united front.
Senator representing Benue North-East, Dr. Gabriel Suswam said he had come to give solidarity to Senator Moro.
Acting State Chairman of PDP, Isaac Mffo who presented the party’s flags to candidates in the zone said the party was an inclusive political platform and charged the candidates to carry everyone along in their campaigns.
