APC finally breaks silence on Ortom’s alleged plan to dump party


The All Progressives Congress (APC), Benue State chapter has responded to the reports that the State governor, Samuel Ortom has concluded plans to dump the party.

The state chairman of the party, Prince Emmanuel Abba Yaro, said those peddling the rumour of Ortom’s purported defection from the party ahead of the 2019 elections were merely fabricating heaps of malicious propaganda to cause disaffection between the governor and his party leaders

Yaro said the story was a handiwork of the opposition and other recalcitrant elements whose job was to formulate nonexisting stories to get one square meal from their paymasters “who are trigger ready with our stolen monies to sponsor falsehood against the APC in their malaise dysphoria.”

Yaro said, “now that elections are at the corners, there would be all forms of spurious sponsorship of injurious media campaigns by the unscrupulous Abuja-based politicians, especially those PDP scoundrels that were shamefully rejected by Nigerians in the 2015 general elections.

“It is noteworthy to inform the public that Governor Ortom is very much with the All Progressives Congress party.

“There’s no rift between us in Benue and the party leadership in Abuja. We are working harmoniously to ensure security of our people. The Governor and the party leadership are trying their best to profer lasting solution to the perennial herders/farmers clashes.

“For the purpose of clarification, the rumours making the round about our Governor, Dr. Samuel Ortom’s purported defection from our party, the APC, is false. It is sponsored by the opposition PDP scoundrels who idly wasted the nation’s resources for the sixteen years they held sway, haggardly squandered our funds and rendered the economy ineffectually recessional.

“It is rather a shame that for the sixteen years they stayed in power, the PDP could not point at any industry to their credit, especially in Benue State.

“They succeeded in brainwashing some of our vibrant youths and kept them in perpetual poverty only to randomly use them for malicious publications on the social media.”
