Why Uba, My Aides Attended Atiku’s Presidential Rally – Ortom
The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom has revealed why the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Titus Uba attended the presidential campaign rally of Atiku Abubakar.
The presence of Uba in the presidential campaign of the PDP had sent a message that there is a crack in Ortom’s camp.
Ortom, however, in a reaction through his special adviser on media and publicity, Terver Akase said Uba is the governorship candidate of the PDP and not Ortom’s candidate.
He further stated that Ortom is not fighting a personal battle, adding that he is not out to destroy PDP in Benue State.
Akase said, “Uba is a PDP candidate and cannot afford to miss the presidential rally when the national chairman and BoT members are there.
“Uba is not Ortom’s candidate, he is the PDP candidate, and for Ortom to even allow some of his loyalists to attend Atiku’s presidential campaign rally goes to show that Ortom is not fighting a personal battle, and it also means that he is not out to destroy PDP in the State.
“So, what is happening is not all about Ortom, the struggle in PDP is for justice, the G-5 Governors and Ortom are not fighting for personal war.”
