2023: Am Waiting For God’s Directive To Support Atiku – Ortom


(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has stated that he will support Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the 2023 elections if directed by God.

Ortom disclosed this on Wednesday on Arise Tv saying that he is fasting and praying to get divine guidance before deciding to support Atiku Abubakar.

According to him, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State stood for the party and made sure that things worked and some party chieftain’s believed he was the party’s best choice for the vice-presidential candidate.

Ortom said: “All of us have our weapon; Wike can be ‘something something’ but when it comes to mobilisation, impact, value addition and reaching out to make sure that the party works the man is an instrument. He’s somebody who stood for the party and made sure that things worked. Some of us believed in him, but unfortunately, it was somebody else. But the party is supreme.



“However, some of us have resorted to prayers. I have been in hibernation. We’ve resorted to prayer: ‘Lord God, where do we go from here.’ I believe as a Christian that power belongs to God. The Bible says a man can receive nothing except it is given to him from above.

“I am praying. I have gone into hibernation. I am fasting and praying. So in the end, if God directs me that I should support Atiku, why should I not do it? After all, he’s my party member. But I am waiting for him to do more.

“I expect him to reach out to Wike, who came second in the presidential primary. The man he denied the popular view of the PDP members — 14 out of 17 — who said Wike should be the vice-presidential candidate. I expect more explanation. I expect him to talk to Wike — whom we are supporting — first. I expect him to reach out to some of us so that together we can work as a party.”
