Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, says the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party has failed to use its internal mechanism to resolve the crisis rocking the party.
Ortom, who spoke during the party stakeholders meeting held at the new banquet hall of Government House, Makurdi, said ignoring Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and his team posed a great danger to the party.
He insisted that the PDP national leadership should address the injustice meted out to Wike and other members of the party.
Ortom stressed that ignoring Wike or any other member of his team could spell doom for the party.
Ortom said, “If you dismiss us and say you do not need us, I believe that will be dangerous. I want the party to address the injustices so that as we move into the elections, we will work together and we will have no crisis.
“There is injustice that has been meted to my friend Wike, because he stood for the party and supported it to the end.
“The leadership of the party should do the needful to resolve the problem and not to shove people around as though they are not relevant. Everyone is relevant and one vote can make one fail at the elections.
“The leadership at the national level should do more. Politics is interest and what is the interest if not our state and our people. What do I tell my people in Benue?
“National PDP failed to use its internal mechanism to resolve crisis rocking the party.”
Ortom said the stakeholders caucus meeting was to discuss the formation of the campaign council of the state.
He boasted that APC had been reduced to nothing in the state, adding that PDP is poised to win all elective positions in the 2023 general elections.
