Ortom Backs Obasanjo’s Endorsement Of Obi, Says He’ll Make A True President
Samuel Ortom, governor of Benue state, has backed the endorsement of Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party, by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Obasanjo, in his New Year message to Nigerians, had endorsed Obi’s presidential bid, saying the LP candidate has an edge over the other candidates.
Commenting on the development, Ortom, in a statement by Terver Akase, his spokesperson, said if he were not a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he would have personally led Obi’s campaign across the country.
Ortom said he is convinced that Obi “possesses the qualities of a leader who will be a true president of this country by guaranteeing justice, equity and fairness for all Nigerians”.
