The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom appears to have finally withdrawn his support for the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Atiku Abubakar.

According to POLITICS NIGERIA, Ortom, on Tuesday evening, accused Atiku of dishonoring him as Governor and working against the interests of the state.

Ortom appeared to have been miffed by Atiku’s comments on recent killings carried out by Fulani herdsmen in the state. He accused Atiku of working with Miyetti Allah.

“It was not correct for a presidential candidate who is seeking to rule the people to say that kind of thing,” Ortom said on Tuesday at the Chapel of Grace, Government House, Makurdi.

“It was very wrong. And it would appear that he doesn’t even reference me and consider me to be a Governor of my state.

He also fired Atiku for sidelining him in his presidential campaign team.

“I am not in his campaign team,”

“The people they appointed there, no consent from me. So I’ll remain on my own. But I’m waiting; when the election comes, we shall vote the election according to the election.”, he said.

Ortom’s statements are coming after a group of elder statesmen in Benue, Minda Leaders of Thoughts, also withdrew their support for Atiku over alleged hate speech and profiling of Benue people.
