Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state said he is not ready to leave the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for his former platform, the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The governor made this known while speaking at the PDP congress where the new state executive committee of the party was elected, putting speculations over his planned defection to rest.
Ortom admitted that he was invited by the APC but he has no plan to join due to his commitment to the growth of the opposition party.
Ortom, however, stated that his stay in PDP will be determined by the impressive performance of the newly-elected state executive committee of the party.
The Benue governor also promised to channel all his power to ensure that the PDP comes back to power at the national level in 2023.
The congress, which was also attended by former Senate president David Mark and senator representing Benue South, Abba Moro, saw John Ngbede-led executive returned.
