Mr. Samuel Ortom incumbent Governor of Benue State, on Wednesday 12th of December, 2018 said the time had come for former Vice-President and the presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, to become Nigeria’s President.
Governor Ortom stated this when he received members of the North Central Women Unite for Atiku, led by their President, Mrs. Dorcas Din.
The Benue state governor said all things were working towards Alhaji Atiku’s success in the 2019 general elections.
Mr. Ortom said the President Aspirant had the capacity to provide purposeful leadership for Nigerians, as well as turning around the nation’s economy.
The Governor said it was insincere for the APC-led Federal Government to demonise opposition members by sending anti-graft agencies after them, only for the same people to become “saints” whenever they joined the APC.
He also assured the women of his administration’s support to ensure victory for Atiku.
He had earlier lamented that women had fared badly in the past three years at the federal level.
