Stakeholders of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Benue State rose from a meeting in Makurdi, the state capital, accusing Governor Samuel Ortom of running a corrupt government.
Addressing stakeholders, the state PDP chairman, Agbo Emmanuel said the situation will soon be reversed as the “stolen mandate” will be retrieved from Ortom who he said is running a temporary administration stressing, the party is very much alive in the state.
Dr Agbo disclosed that PDP’s proposed national conference scheduled to hold at the end of the month will draw experts on election management and is expected to find a way to take back power from the APC in 2019 as the party is on its way out of government.
Also speaking, immediate past governor of the state, Gabriel Suswam decried the falsehood of the APC government in the state which claimed that he was detained in the United Kingdom.
According to Suswam, APC used that as propaganda to dampen the spirit of PDP members in the state while in actual sense he was operated upon due to ill health.
He observed that it is the first time PDP members were coming to terms with the opposition, even as he accused APC of witch- hunting PDP youths in the state, stressing that the move is a deliberate plot to suppress the party.
On his part, the immediate past Minister of Interior, Comrade Abba Moro decried the situation where the governor who goes by the slogan of “In God we trust” will hold the Bible in one hand and snake in the other and deceiving the people on daily basis.
The meeting later ratified the appointment of Dr Tsetim Ayargwer as PDP deputy chairman to replace Joe Nyiam, while Moses Gber replaced Abraham Nyikwagh as state auditor. Similarly, Justin Shaku replaced Moses Anaana J as state youth leader while Barr Tar Tombuwua was made the chairman of the disciplinary committee; with Rt Hon Terngu Tsegba, Agber Humbe, Bart John , Johnson Onah, Paul Dan Musa, Alu Abari, Mrs Owakoyi Egharua and Dr Adakole Elijah as members.
