Adams Oshiomhole, National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has said that the party was relieved that Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue defected to the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
“I am relieved as national chairman, and I believe that the leadership of the party in Benue is also relieved that Ortom has left the party and returned to the club he belongs”, Oshiomhole said in an interview with newsmen on Friday..
Oshiomhole lampooned the PDP as a “club whose philosophy is to share the money and not develop communities”.
“We now have a clean platform to search for a clean and credible candidate from Benue, a candidate that can provide leadership that the great people of Benue state deserves. And not someone who seeks to make political capital out of human graves and celebrating the death of his own people,”he said.
Oshiomhole added that as a party, the APC condemns killings by any criminal whether in Benue state or any other part of the country.
