Governor Samuel Ortom has finally left the All Progressives Congress, APC to rejoin the Peoples Democratic Party.
He announced the decision during a meeting with Local Government Chairmen and Councillors at Government House, Makurdi.
Governor Ortom said his resignation from the APC was based on his personal conviction and appeals from Benue people to dump the party.
He expressed appreciation to the people of Benue for standing behind him and promised not to let them down.
The Chairman of ALGON, Mr. Anthony Shawon and Chairman Benue State Legislative Council Forum, Mr. Tom Hanmakyur promised to give the Governor their maximum support.
Correspondent Terna Injua reports that Fourteen Local Government Chairmen and majority of the councillors also defected to the PDP.
