“I Don’t See The APC Winning The Elections” – Governor Ortom
The incumbent All Progressives Congress and President Muhammadu Buhari have come under fire from Governor Samuel Ortom for allegedly upholding a manifesto pledge to turn the country over to Nigerians.
According to Ortom in a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Nathaniel Ikyur, the APC will lose the 2023 presidential election because of their appalling performance over the previous seven years.
Additionally, he claimed that the APC cannot win the elections of 2023 based on his 40 years of expertise in local politics as well as at the state and federal levels.
The Governor of Benue state also urged the Independent National Electoral Commission to maintain its objectivity and professionalism.
The statement read;
“As a people, Nigerians need to have a viable alternative to the current crop of leaders among the ruling party.
“They (APC) have kept their promise to take Nigeria from top to bottom. They have taken our country beneath the bottom. It’s a big shame. For us in the PDP, the onus rests on us to mend the cracks in our party. No external influence will do that for us. By the grace of God, we will reach a successful end so that we can move on.
“So long as INEC is as professional and neutral as it was in Osun and Ekiti states, I don’t see the APC winning the elections.”
