Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has dumped the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to join the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
His spokesperson, Terver Akase, confirmed the move on Wednesday.
“Yes, he has defected from APC to PDP,” Mr Akase said when contacted on phone.
Tahav Agerzua, a media adviser to the governor, also revealed that his principal complained that the APC was no longer a platform that had the interest of the people of Benue at heart.
“He now believes that his aspiration and the plight of Benue people would be better realised in the PDP than the APC,” Mr Agerzua said.
Mr Ortom’s defection comes barely a day after the Benue State House of Assembly impeached its APC Speaker, Terkimbi Tyanger.
