GOVERNOR of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, his deputy, Benson Abounu and the state chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Abba Yaro were last Wednesday stranded in Oju where they went for the grand finale of the APC senatorial candidate Comrade Daniel Onjeh who was absent at the event.
The trio drove to the area in separate convoys in company of their aides and party supporters where thousands of APC supporters were gathered after touring the other eight local government areas in the senatorial district to solicit for votes.
Ortom was said to have been visibly angry as Onjeh’s absence kept him, his deputy and other government dignitaries who accompanied him waiting for over five hours.
Nigerian Pilot gathered that the visibly angry governor did not conceal his feelings as he went ahead to address some members of the caucus at the lodge.
He was said to have confessed that it was the last time he would be embarrassed in such manner, noting that Onjeh was working for his failure.
It was also gathered that it was the timely intervention of former deputy governor, Chief Steven Lawani, deputy governor, Abounu and other chieftains of the party that prevented the governor from abandoning the rally.
Some people who spoke to this reporter regretted what they described as the huge embarrassment meted out to them by Onjeh.
However, an angry Ortom was said to have later addressed the crowd for forty minutes.
Nigerian Pilot gathered that Onjeh later arrived the venue of the rally and drove to the residence of Engr. Morgan Okwoche after most people had returned home.
