Ortom, who noted that All Progressives Congress (APC) has been de-market in Benue, stated that the PDP has 26 out of 30 House of Assembly members noting that by 2023, the party would have 32 seats.

He commended the 36 governorship aspirants, who contested primary on the party platform, saying though they did not emerge candidates, they have continued to work for the success of the party.

He urged all PDP members in the state to keep faith with the party to win victory at the polls bearing in mind that the focus is to rescue the country from the APC’s ‘bottom’ and take it to the top.

He further appealed to aggrieved members to sheathe their swords saying: “PDP in Benue is united. All blackmail should cease in the state. There is no crisis in Benue but at the national level.”
