PDP Crisis: Tambuwal Meets Ortom For Possible Reconciliation

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, on Sunday, met with his Sokoto State counterpart, Aminu Tambuwa in Makurdi, the Benue State capital.

The meeting, according to Ortom, was at the instance of the Sokoto State governor.

Ortom said that the arrogance of the leadership of the PDP was responsible for the crisis rocking the party.

Ortom said, “This meeting is at his instance. We have discussed quite a several issues including the division in the PDP; the G-5 which I am a member. He is here principally to see how we can team up and work together as a party. I have told him he is welcome; we are together, and we are members of the PDP.

But I have said that the leadership of this party has failed to take advantage of the challenges of the party and make it stronger. Right from when we held our convention, instead of the leadership deploying its internal dispute resolution mechanism to look at the grievances that arose as a result of the dispute that arose as a result of primaries.

They have failed to do this. Rather it is arrogance, a nonchalant attitude; and nobody has cared to reach out to us even when we voiced out that things were not going on well.”
