Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom while addressing his party’s – People’s Democratic Party (PDP) stakeholders’ on Friday in Makurdi said he has no plans to anoint anybody as his successor.
He assured them that he would allow the party to field the most acceptable candidate for the governorship election in 2023.
“If someone tells you that I have anointed him as my successor, tell him that he is lying. I will work with any candidate that the party fields in 2023”.
“Nobody should deceive you that he is my anointed candidate for the 2023 general elections’.”
The governor, however, advised the party to respect zoning arrangements while deciding people to contest the chairmanship and councillorship seats in local government elections slated to hold Nov. 30.
“Zoning is the only thing that will give us the results we want at the end of the day. Zoning is very critical in politics.
