Elders and other stakeholders of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Benue North-East Senatorial District have thrown their weight behind Governor Samuel Ortom in the face of “unwarranted media attacks on the Governor by the Federal Government and leaders of All Progressives Congress, APC”.

The stakeholders who met on Tuesday in Katsina-Ala passed a vote of confidence on Governor Ortom in a unanimous voice vote and urged him to continue to serve as the voice of helpless Nigerian People who are victims of attacks in parts of the country.

They described as unacceptable, the “sponsored campaign of calumny” waged against the Governor by APC and the Federal Government.

The stakeholders frowned at the utterances of the Minister of Special Duties and Inter-Governmental Affairs, George Akume on the Governor and demanded a public apology from the Minister.

They expressed shock that Akume who is a Ex-Governor of the state threw caution to the winds and tagged Benue people as criminals who have been stockpiling arms and attacking themselves.

Chairman of the party in the Zone, Hon Azua Ashongu in a lead speech on the occasion, said Governor Ortom has been speaking the minds of Benue people and other Nigerian People.

He said anyone who attacks the Governor should be prepared to contend with millions of Nigerian People who love justice and peace.

Ashongu said the party will not fold its arms and watch enemies of peace get away with their acts of impunity and hatred towards the Governor.

He said it was unfortunate that some sons of Benue have sold their conscience and betrayed their people to join forces with enemies of the state.
