Suswam sent me out of PDP - Ortom


All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in Benue State, Dr. Samuel Ortom, yesterday said Governor Gabriel Suswam sent him out of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Ortom also said at the rally held in his

honour by the APC at IBB Square, Makurdi, that the governor’s action turned out a blessing in disguise for him to now fly the party’s flag.
“Suswam has provided an enabling environment for me to become the APC governorship candidate. I’m indeed grateful to him because if he (Suswam) had not sent me away from the PDP, I wouldn’t be here today,” he said.

He berated the Suswam administration for being unable to pay workers’ salaries, stressing the need for the electorate to vote out the PDP by ensuring that the opposition takes over government in the coming election.
While calling on party faithful to maintain peace before, during and after elections, Ortom warned that the PDP should as well toe the path of fairness saying his supporters would not fold their arms for anyone to rob them of their mandate.

“We subscribe to peace during this election but we will not allow any man to rob us of our victory. I’m coming from the PDP and I know what they used to do. We will not fold our hands to watch anybody rob us,” he maintained.
