Governor Samuel Ortom on Monday met with his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike and the national chairman of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Secondus Uche at the Government House, Makurdi.
Governor Ortom told newsmen that the meeting was aimed at sustaining the confidence of Nigerians with a view of winning the 2023 general elections.
“This is a family meeting for us to reason together in order to make our party more vibrant because Nigerians are waiting for us to take over the mantle of leadership at the centre in 2023,” Ortom said.
The governor said that realignment has been ongoing within the party with several meetings held in different states.
Speaking on the killings of people by suspected Fulani herders on Sunday, Governor Ortom condemned the killing and said that the presidency was not yet ready to address insecurity in the state.
Ortom disclosed that one of his relations who is in 200 level at Benue State University, Makurdi was one of the eight people killed by the suspected herdsmen on Sunday in the Guma council area.
