Benue State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has passed a vote of confidence in its leader in the state, Governor Samuel Ortom.
The vote of confidence is coming on the heels of the steps taken by the party National Working Committee (NWC) in referring Ortom to its Disciplinary Committee to answer charges of anti-party activities preferred against him.
In a statement issued by the State Publicity Secretary, Bemgba Iortyom and made available to newsmen in Makurdi, noted that the party in the state finds it difficult to understand the rationale by which the NWC determined nti-party activities and singled out governor Ortom out of the G-5 governor for punitive action.
“And what the procedure is for meting out punitive measures against such anti-party activities where some persons including Professor Dennis Ityavyar have been suspended without facing any disciplinary Committee.
“The party feels strongly that in fulfilling its duty as a state chapter it must remind the NWC of the implications of its current action against Governor Ortom and others.
Governor Samuel Ortom is a true testament to what resilience is. Like myself, Chief Ortom rose from relative humble backgrounds to get to these heights, against every odd.
