Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has disaffirmed rumour that he has agreed to support the Presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, (APC), Senator Bola Tinubu in 2023 election.
Ortom’s Chief Press Secretary Nathaniel Ikyur disregarded the claim, advising people to pay no attention to such insinuation.
It was also reported that the former minister who is currently in London alongside other disgruntled governors, had struck an agreement with the erstwhile Lagos State Governor to support his bid to become Nigeria president next year.
Some quarters even reported that Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, who is the leader of the group, has instructed the G-5 Governors to mobilize support for the APC candidate.
Ikyur, in a quick response said, “No, it’s not true. That is not correct.
He confirmed report that the Governor traveled to London but insisted that he didn’t meet with Tinubu.
“The Governor did not meet with Tinubu. Yes, they are in London. They are being expected back Today (Friday) but he didn’t meet with Tinubu.
“They are strategizing and have not made any such pronouncement. If they have to make any pronouncements, they would let the world know.
“They are old enough and they are experienced enough to do that. So we should not be relying on speculations and rumours,” he said.html
