A video that captured Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State endorsing the presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, for the Presidency has surfaced online.
In the video, the governor said Obi is the only presidential candidate who has visited Benue and chosen to visit the IDP camp and sympathize with them.
Ortom stated that the LP presidential flagbearer has the capacity to bring justice, equity, and fairness, adding that Obi is the best person that can help deliver Nigeria from its various challenges.
He urged Nigerians to vote for Obi to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023 and rescue the country from bad leadership caused by the All Progressives Congress (APC).
He said: “Several presidential candidates have come here, and none of them have chosen to visit those IDPs camps and look at their plight to see how they are doing and give them hope that when they win, they will bring them succor, help, and hope.
“For you to have chosen to visit the IDPs on a Christmas day that you should be celebrating with your family, for me as a Christian, I say God will bless you and your aspirations. My prayer is that God will bless your aspiration to be the president of this country.
“Because I have seen capacity, faith, and hope, and I have seen someone who can bring the required equity, justice, and fairness that I have been pursuing since I became governor in 2015. If I were not in PDP, I would have been following you all over the place to canvass and vote for you.
“But, because I’m in PDP, I’m telling Nigerians that this man can help deliver this country from its challenges.”
