Ortom provides update on Atiku-Wike reconciliation


Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has said Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2023 election, has listened to his counsel with regard to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that speaking in an interview aired last Friday on Arise TV, Atiku said he picked who could deliver (Ifeanyi Okowa, governor of Delta State) over Wike.

Ortom, an ally of Wike, had been critical of the former Nigerian Vice-President over his relationship with the Rivers State governor after the PDP primary election where Wike emerged second.

Fielding questions from newsmen at the Benue State Government House, Makurdi, on Monday, Ortom stated that the supposed fall out between Wike and Atike is being resolved.

“I don’t want to answer questions on that agai,” Ortom said.

“My presidential candidate has acceded to my advice. I wouldn’t want to contradict my presidential candidate.

“Whatever happens rightly or wrongly, I accept it. We’re the same family; we will find a way of resolving our matter.”
