Defection: Hundreds dump APC for PDP in Benue

Saturday in Benue State, hundreds   of  members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, defected to the People's Democratic Party, PDP.

The mass defection of APC members and others from other political parties in Benue state continued on Saturday when hundreds of them in Ushongo Local Government Area (LGA) of the state again decamped to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). 

The defectors who abandoned their parties less than two weeks after a similar occurrence in Agatu and Kwande LGAs were received by Governor Samuel Ortom assisted by Senator Gabriel Suswam representing Benue North East senatorial district.

 Receiving the defectors’ Governor Ortom posited that considering all the attacks and killings by armed herdsmen that the state had witnessed, without genuine efforts by the federal government to tackle the challenge and also intervene in IDPs situation in the state, any Benue political party member still in the APC should check him or herself.

Chief Judge Ortom has been one of the critics of the Muhammadu Buhari administration, especially as it concerns security.  -ABTV.
