The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has expressed confidence in the newly elected leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, stating that they will lead the party to victory in the next 2023 general elections. The Governor announced this on Thursday in Abuja.
According to the DAILY POST, the leadership of the party, which was recently chosen during the party’ s National Convention in Abuja, is scheduled to be inaugurated during the second week of December 2021.
Ortom expressed confidence that, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, the newly elected national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and other members of the party’ s new executive committee will assist in rescuing the country from APC’ s disastrous governance in 2023.
APC- led administration has not contributed to attempts to realize the aspirations of Nigeria’ s founding fathers, says the governor, who is also a member of the The People Democratic Party (PDP).
Governor Ortom expressed his desire that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) reach a consensus in the selection of its presidential candidate for the 2023 election, noting that the same method was used during the party’ s national convention.
” The new leadership of PDP which shall be inaugurated in the coming weeks is capable of providing the needed leadership and direction for our great country Nigeria. ”
” We are very committed and not leaving any stone unturned to ensure that we win the presidency come 2023. We are discussing amongst ourselves and I believe that God will help us achieve our purpose, ” Ortom stated.
Chief Dokpesi had stated that the leadership of the party has spoken clearly as a consequence of the party convention, noting that they are all prepared to seek around the country in order to find the greatest candidate who will redeem the country, stressing that the party is unified.
He added that the people were suffering and that youths in the country were 50 years behind the times owing to a lack of development and the incapacity of the current government to create possibilities for people to achieve their goals in a safe environment.
” My involvement in politics is based on ideology and philosophy. I want the best for Nigeria and can not be intimidated under any guise to give up my ideologies to join the APC, ” Dokpesi stated.
