The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has welcomed Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom, to its fold after he dumped the All Progressives’ Congress (APC) on Wednesday, July 25, 2018.
Ortom disclosed that he was joining the PDP to ensure justice, equity and fairness for the people of Benue.
“I have formally resigned from APC to PDP and have presented my letter of resignation to the party’s chairman of my ward,” he announced.
The PDP took to its official Twitter account (@OfficialPDPNig) to congratulate the governor on dumping the “failed and dysfunctional” APC.
The post read, “Breaking News: Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has finally dumped the failed and dysfunctional @APCNigeria and has returned to the reformed & re-positioned @OfficialPDPNig. We welcome him back to our Party as we await the return/defection of others. PDP! Power to the People.”
Ortom, a former Minister of State for Trade and Industry, had dumped the PDP for APC in 2014 after he lost out at the party’s gubernatorial primary election.
