Ortom Joins PDP, Tambuwal May Follow Suit Today
Thu, 26 Jul 2018

BUY OR SELL OLD AND NEW CARS, PARTS, CAR MATERIALS AS CAR MART NG LAUNCH IN NIGERIA

Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom, yesterday formally joined the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after dumping the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC). LEADERSHIP gathered that there was confusion in Makurdi, the Benue state capital, as youths under the auspices of coalition of Benue Youths comprising 40 groups, besieged the entrance of Government House where they compeled him to announce his return to the PDP. The governor had declared last week that he was leaving APC because the platform on which he was elected had given him a red card and that he is currently a freeman waiting for any party that would admit him into its fold.

[better-ads type=”banner” banner=”13566″ campaign=”none” count=”2″ columns=”1″ orderby=”rand” order=”ASC” align=”center” show-caption=”1″][/better-ads]

Four days after, Ortom observed that it was Senator George Akume that gave him red card and not the national leadership of the APC. Following news that he has formally joined the PDP, the national leadership of the APC yesterday cried foul, describing the governor’s action as “somewhat surprising.” In a statement signed by the national publicity secretary of the party, Mallam Bolaji Abdullahi, the APC said it was surprised that despite assurances given to Governor Ortom and his expression of satisfaction, he defected all the same. The party recalled efforts made by its national chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to address some of the grievances raised by the Benue State governor pertaining to the local politics in Benue State.

The statement made available to LEADERSHIP noted: “The Governor had left the meeting saying he was satisfied with the assurances given by Party leaders. We are still working on giving effect to the resolutions from the meeting. Therefore, we are somewhat surprised by Governor Ortom’s decision. “The Party reiterates its earlier position that it respects the rights of every citizen to chose their political affiliation but expresses hopes that those who have left the Party will rescind their decisions. “Even with this development, we don’t think it is too late for reconciliation. We have to continue to talk. As long as people keep their minds open and have the courage to put the real issues on the table, reconciliation is still possible”.

The APC called on its members across the country to remain calm, saying the party’s leadership continues to work hard to position the Party strongly for the next general elections. Prior to his declaration yesterday, Governor Ortom was scheduled to attend a meeting with the APC national leadership in Abuja but was prevented by the angry youths who insisted that he must leave APC or face the risk of being voted out in 2019. As he was leaving Government House, Makurdi for the trip, the governor met the youths in their large numbers, carrying placards with the following inscriptions: “Ortom don’t go back to APC”, “We don’t have land to donate for ranching”, “APC is Miyetti party”, “Our farms are not for cows”, You must leave APC”, “Ortom is our party” and “2019: On Ortom we stand.”

Why I Didn’t Honour Police Invitation – Saraki
Thu, 26 Jul 2018

Senate President Bukola Saraki yesterday disclosed why he failed to honour the invitation by the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to report at a police station in Guzape, Abuja, over the Offa robbery incidence. Saraki’s special adviser on media and publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, said his principal had answered all the questions raised in the police invitation in a letter sent to the police on Tuesday. The Senate president, who stated that his two-page letter to the IGP on the invitation was duly acknowledged, noted that after answering all the questions raised by the police in his letter, he did not believe that there was any further need for him to go to the police personally. LEADERSHIP recalls that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, had on Monday invited Saraki to appear before the Police Special Anti-Robbery Unit in Guzape, Abuja,

[better-ads type=”banner” banner=”13566″ campaign=”none” count=”2″ columns=”1″ orderby=”rand” order=”ASC” align=”center” show-caption=”1″][/better-ads]

to answer questions on his alleged link to the Offa robbery incident. Saraki had stated in an earlier response that the invitation was “a mere afterthought which is designed to achieve political purpose.“ He said that he had it on good authority that the Police had already decided on the suspects to arraign in court in Ilorin, Kwara State, on Wednesday (yesterday) based on the advice of the Director of Public Prosecution (DPP), Mohammed U.E. and that his invitation was a ploy aimed at scoring cheap political points. He said, ” I have been reliably informed that the police invitation was planned by IG as a ploy to stop an alleged plan by some senators and House of Representatives members from defecting from the All Progressives Congress (APC). It was also said that if I was detained between Tuesday and Wednesday, that will abort the so-called defection plan.
