2023: Gov Ortom Backs Obasanjo’s Endorsement Of Obi


January 04, (THEWILL) – Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has thrown his support behind former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, over his endorsement of Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, to win this year’s presidential election to provide the leadership that Nigerians are yearning for.

The Governor stated that if he were not a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he would have personally led the Peter Obi’s campaign across the country.

Governor Ortom strongly recommends Peter Obi to Nigerians as the man who has the capacity to effectively tackle the economic, security and other challenges facing the country.


He is convinced that Obi possesses the qualities of a leader, who will be a true President of this country by guaranteeing justice, equity and fairness for all Nigerians.

The Governor stresses that for some years, the country has been tottering on the verge of collapse, owing to leadership failure and its attendant consequences of poverty, heightened insecurity with banditry, kidnappings and other acts of terrorism threatening the very foundations of the nation.

In a statement, the Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Terver Akase, quotes the governor as saying; “The President that Nigeria needs at this challenging time in the country’s history is one who understands the urgent need to unite the people and speedily initiate policies and actions to redirect the ship of the nation on the path of growth and development. Peter Obi has all such qualities.”

Governor Ortom lauds Chief Obasanjo for once again demonstrating objectivity, truth and patriotism as a statesman, whose views on national issues must be taken seriously.
