Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has said the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is a party of equal opportunities and truly living up to its name. He noted that it was not owned by any individual as it was the case with some political parties in the state.
He stated this Thursday during the decamping ceremony of a Member of the Benue State House of Assembly representing Makurdi North Constituency, Thomas Kwagh-Kudi from the All Progressives Congress (APC) to the PDP at St Mary’s Primary School, North Bank, Makurdi.
Governor Ortom congratulated Kwagh-Kudi for joining the PDP saying, “APC has ruined all aspects of the economy of Nigeria. You have taken the right step. Together we shall move Nigeria forward. PDP is a democratic party and guarantees equal opportunities and not a property of any individual as it was the case with some political parties in the state.”
“We are firm and committed to the well being of Nigeria. Today, even the President of the nation can not even go his village as a result of insecurity,” he added.
Senator representing Benue North-East Senatorial district, Senator Gabriel Suswam explained that APC has failed the nation. “They have nothing to offer Nigerians. The party that is capable of providing purposeful leadership for the people is PDP. You can attest that PDP as the name implies, is truly democratic and carries the people along in the scheme of things,” he said.
Member representing Makurdi/Guma Federal Constituency, Benjamin Mzondu, in a remark gave assurances that Makurdi/Guma is completely for PDP.
He assured Kwagh-Kudi of equal opportunities in the party and urged the people to support PDP, in order to rescue Nigeria from the present situations.
Chairman, Makurdi Local Government Council, Eunice Torbunde and the PDP House of Assembly candidate for Makurdi North Constituency, Martins Adzer in separate remarks congratulated Kwagh-Kudi for the decision to join PDP and assured the governor that come 2023, the victory of the party will be total in Makurdi North, Benue State and Nigeria.
