Nathaniel Ikyur, spokesperson of the Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has reacted to rumours of his principal’s planned defection to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Ikyur, on Saturday, asserted that Ortom will not rejoin APC.

“Whoever peddles such rumours must be a serial rabble-rouser who wants attention to himself. This is a fat lie,” Ikyur said.

“It is therefore laughable to suggest that Governor Samuel Ortom will dump t

he People’s Democratic Party at a time he is galvanising support among other patriotic leaders of the party to rescue Nigeria from the clueless leadership the APC led of General Muhammadu Buhari’s administration has plunged the country into.

“Let me be clear here, Governor Ortom is not contemplating on joining the APC at any time. Rather, the Governor is in the forefront, working with other leaders of the PDP to ensure that the party wins the presidency and many other states as well as retains power here in the state,” Ikyur added.
