Ortom says still consulting God to take decision on 2023 senatorial contest

Governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, has said he is still consulting God to decide if he should contest the 2023 Senatorial election or not.

According to him, “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 governor also expressed that the PDP was waxing stronger and would win overwhelmingly at the 2023 general elections.

He told newsmen that the PDP was better positioned now and was ready to wrestle power from the ruling APC.

“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,’’ the governor said.
