It seems the crisis rocking the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may not end any time soon as Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has said that his Rivers State counterpart , Nyesom Wike, needs to be pacified.
Speaking during an expanded caucus meeting of the PDP in Makurdi, the Benue State capital on Monday, Ortom said Wike has faced injustice in the party and it must be addressed.
“Wike stood and supported the party and he should be given due attention,” the governor said.
Ortom criticised the national leadership of the PDP for failing to use its internal mechanism to resolve the crisis rocking the party, urging the leadership of the party to look at the issues and address them head-on.
“The idea of dismissing people in politics that they do not matter is dangerous because a single vote counts in politics. Injustice has been meted out to Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers and it must be addressed. he must get justice,” he added.
The governor appealed to governorship aspirants who failed at the primaries to keep faith with the party.
Ortom further said that the PDP was going to rescue the country from the hands of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), emphasising that the party would rescue and rebuild Nigeria.
He urged party faithful in the state who were aggrieved to sheathe their swords, noting that all forms of blackmail within the party should cease as they work together for victory in 2023.
