Governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom has spoken about defecting to the All Progressives Congress, APC and supporting Tinubu after leaving office.
Ortom who dismissed claims about defecting to APC vowed to support and work for the President-elect, Bola Tinubu, as a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, member.
Speaking on Arise Television’s Morning Show on Wednesday, the governor said he would continue to ensure equity and justice in Nigeria.
Ortom said he worked for the emergence of a southern presidency because he wanted equity and justice.
According to him: “That is not on my table, I’m in PDP, and I worked for the Southern presidency, which Tinubu and Obi were part of. Defecting is not on my table now.
“If Tinubu is sworn in, I will continue to pray and support him to succeed.
“I remain the leader of PDP in Benue State but will continue to work for equity and justice in Nigeria.”
