Gov. Samuel Ortom of Benue State expressed confidence in the PDP’s growing strength and predicted a landslide victory in the 2023 general elections in Makurdi on Saturday.
He told reporters that the PDP was now in a stronger position and poised to take power from the ruling APC.
“The PDP has made mistakes in the past and has learned a lot from them, and it is perfectly prepared to take over the country’s leadership from the APC.”

“No one should mislead you into believing that the PDP is polarized. As a group, we’re putting in a lot of effort.
“We got together and decided that the positions in the north should travel to the south, and the positions in the south should go to the north.”
“This is the Zoning Committee’s resolution, which has been gratefully approved at the national level.”
“No one has objected to the decision.” The governor stated, “All PDP members broadly accept it.”
He also stated that he had not yet decided whether or not he would run for Senator in 2023.
“I’m still consulting with God because I never make a decision without consulting Him,” Ortom said. “If He says yes, I’ll contest, but if He says no, I’ll obey His decision.”
