Benue campaign kick-off: PDP indivisible, ready to clinch power in 2023


From Scholastica Onyeka, MakurdiThe Director, Election Management, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Campaign Organization, Professor Iyorwuese Hagher, has said the gathering of eminent personalities at the flag-off of the campaign in Benue state was a sign that the party is indivisible and ready to clinch power in the 2023 elections.Professor Hagher who stated this in a statement on Monday described the mammoth crowd at the IBB square as unprecedented in quantity and quality.According to him, the gathering of the National chairman of the party, Dr lyorchia Ayu who was represented by his deputy, Ambassador Umar Damagum and five PDP governors, Nyeson Wike, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Okezie Ikpeazu, Seyi Makinde and the host, Samuel Ortom added special spice to the colourful flag-off.He said the event has brought down the false heat generated regarding the pary’s political crises, a sign that the party is strong and cannot be broken.“The speakers were down-to-earth, friendly and cohesive. With a flag-off like yesterday, the PDP is ready to clinch victory in all the elections next year, from the election of president Atiku Abubakar to the last member of the state assembly in Benue State.“The Benue campaign Flag-off is significant proof that the PDP is big and strong enough to absolve internal shocks and contrarian forces without breaking apart.“The five governors’ assurance of PDP victory in Benue and in all their states has proven that the PDP is not divided but dynamic,” he added.Hagher noted that Governor Ortom has demonstrated a firm grasp of the Benue grassroots contrary to the impression the public has of Ortom as pulling down the PDP house.While insisting that Ortom must be understood as a pillar of presidential democratic ideals which is characterized by freedom of expression, the henchman said “there is a flawless synergy between Ortom, Ayu, Suswam, David Mark, Abba Moro, Orker Jev and all other PDP structures in the state.“He is a master at political histrionics and even his supposed tirades against the PDP flag bearer are merely designed to bring the former vice-president down to earth.“Ortom has been campaigning for an active presidency who ought to be less a Fulani irredentist like Buhari and more of a Pan-Nigerian President in whose political veins, flow Fulani, Yoruba, Igbo, Tiv and other blood.“The Benue flag-off was also a window of how subtle diplomacy and mature politics can resolve and untangle complicated political knots like the Wike Saga.“Ortom and Wike are indeed the best vote catchers for the PDP and Atiku presidential elections when the chips are down and the votes tallied next year.“In Benue, the PDP can hammer again on the nail to the APC coffin by latching on the collective failure of all APC leaders.Higher who noted that the time for tame and tepid legislators is gone expressed enthusiasm that with the election of fearless, daredevil legislator like Samuel Ortom and others in the PDP senate and other legislators next year, Nigerians should expect an end to a comatose, corrupt and compromised legislature.
