From Rose Ejembi and Scholastica Onyeka, Makurdi

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has urged the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to address the injustices meted out to  Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, and other members of the party.

The governor, who spoke, yesterday, in Government House, Makurdi, during an expanded caucus meeting of the PDP in Benue State, noted that he has offered suggestion on how party should be resolve their lingering crisis at the national party, warned that ignoring Wike, or anyone at that, would be dangerous for the party at the polls.

He said the leadership of the party has failed to deploy its internal mechanism and conflict management skills in handling the crisis.

“There is injustice that has been meted to my friend, Wike, because he stood for the party and supported it to the end.

“The leadership of the party should do the needful to resolve the problem and not to shove people around as though they are not relevant. Everyone is relevant and one vote can make you fail election.

“So, the leadership, at the national level, should do more. Politics is interest and what is the interest of out state and our people. What do I tell my people in Benue?”

Governor Ortom cautioned the party at the national level not to relegate any member saying

“If you dismiss us that you don’t need us, I believe that will be dangerous. I want the party to address the injustices so that as we move into election, we will work together and we will have no crisis.”

Ortom said the stakeholders’ meeting was to discuss the formation of the campaign council of the state.

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.”
