''I have no intention to leave APC''Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom says

Benue state governor, Samuel Ortom, has denied media reports claiming he is planning to defect from the ruling party, APC. The media was agog over the weekend with rumors that the governor who has been at loggerheads with the Federal government over the handling of the herdsmen attack in the state, is planning to defect from APC to another party.

The governor in a statement released by his spokesperson, Terver Akase, said there is no truth in the rumor. The statement in part reads
''Governor Ortom has no intention to leave APC for another party and has not consulted anyone on the matter. The Governor enjoys a cordial working relationship with other leaders of the party both at the local, state and national levels and is focused on delivering greater benefits of democracy to his people including tackling the security challenges confronting them and there is no cause to warrant his defection to another party. The Governor’s focus is on solving the problem in collaboration with other stakeholders. He wants to see the end of the killings but this can only be done with the support of the Federal Government. Fortunately, the administration of President Buhari has responded positively by sending troops and other security operatives to chase away the armed militia from Benue communities''.
