I’m consulting with God to run for Senate in 2023 – Ortom
GOVERNOR Samuel Ortom of Benue State says he is yet to decide on his next political adventure in 2023.
According to the governor, he is still consulting with God on whether to run for Senate.
Ortom made this known today in Makurdi.
He said: “I am still consulting with God because I do not take any decision without consulting my God.
“If He says yes, I will go ahead and contest but if He says no, I will obey His decision.”
Ortom said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was waxing stronger and would convincingly win the 2023 general elections.
The governor noted that the PDP is better positioned now and ready to wrest power from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said: “PDP as a party made mistakes in the past and has learnt a lot of lessons from its mistakes and it is fully prepared to take over the leadership of the country from the APC.
“Nobody should deceive you that PDP is polarised. We are working together as a party.
“We met and agreed that the positions which are currently in the North should go to the South, while those in the South should go to the North.
“This is the resolution of the Zoning Committee and it is graciously accepted at the national level.
“Nobody has begrudged the decision. It is widely accepted by all PDP members.”
