The Governor of Benue State, and a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Samuel Ortom has in a nutshell, described the presidential candidate of Labour Party, LP, Peter Obi as the best candidate for Nigeria ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

The embattled Ortom who have been in a longer head with his party’s presidential candidate, Alhaji Atiku Abubaka, made this assertion when Obi paid him a visit in Makurdi, the Benue state capital after visiting flood victims in the state.

Speaking, Ortom said Obi is one of the finest presidential candidates for the 2023 general elections.

Ortom stressed that the Labour Party man has the capacity to liberate Nigeria from economic and security challenges.

He said, “If Nigeria needs to make a choice, you are one of the finest candidates that we have in this country. In terms of education, in terms of character, in terms of performance, in terms of reaching out, in terms of being a pan-Nigerian, in terms of industrialisation, passion to ensure that our country is liberated from where we are; out of insecurity to security, and out of economic woes to economic vibrancy and out of lack to adequate social life, you have the capacity to make things work.”

Ortom encouraged that neither party nor ethnicity should be considerations in the February presidential election, but the capacity of a candidate to deliver Nigeria from “the mess.”

He further stated, “And Peter Obi from your antecedents, you have the capacity. If I were God, I would have said everything but I am not God.”

Ortom affirmed noboby of structure can stop whoever God decides to be Nigeria’s next President.

“If I were not in PDP, Peter Obi would have been my candidate but I am in PDP, that is my handicap but my prayers are with you.”

Obi had earlier said the ‘deal’ he has with some aggrieved PDP governors including Ortom is to achieve a better Nigeria.
