The leader of the G5 PDP Integrity Governors’ Group and Benue State Governor, Governor Samuel Ortom says the group is still very committed to the PDP, adding that they will not leave the party.
The Governor was speaking Wednesday night at Umuobiakwa country home of Gov. Okezie Ikpeazu during a Gala Nite organized by the Abia State Government in honour of the visiting G5 PDP Integrity Governors who are in the State for the flag-off of the Abia State PDP Campaigns.
Governor Ortom, who said that the Group still appreciates the PDP, however, pointed out that they will not be intimidated from standing for the truth.
He charged Abians to ensure that PDP wins all the elections in the State.
In his speech, the Abia State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu assured that the G5 PDP Governors are standing on a strong moral pedestal and doing everything to put away impunity and high-handedness in the PDP.
He said, “Nigeria is in dire straits and hanging on a balance, adding that if the Integrity Governors fail to put their feet forward, it would spell doom for the country”.
Dr. Ikpeazu disclosed that they were not pursuing their individual comfort but determined to lay a solid foundation for the unborn generation, stressing that they were determined to stand for the truth, adding “as soon as the right thing is done, the PDP will win the election next year”.
