Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Thursday reversed his earlier decision that he was leaving the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Benue State governor made the u-turn after a meeting he had with the National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshiomhole.
Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, Ortom said the party’s leadership assured him that no individual in Benue state can
push him out of the party.
He said: “I was given a red card by a Senator but the leadership of the party told me that the decision of the party leadership at the national level is superior to any individual and I think that is good
“We have spoken to him, he has spoken to me, stakeholders are going to be spoken to and that is where I belong. We have not concluded the matter, it is an
ongoing process because I have always stood for peace and I always want peace to prevail.
“I appreciate the intervention and I hope that we would be able to resolve the matter of differences and this is the funny thing about politics.
“I am here in APC, a member of APC, I’m still flying the flag of APC and I only said I was given a red card but I have been corrected by the national chairman.”
