Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has hailed former President, Olusegun Obasanjo over his endorsement of Peter Obi as the right candidate to win the 2023 presidential election and provide the leadership that Nigerians desire.

According to the governor, if he were not a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, he would have personally led Obi’s campaign across the country.

He strongly recommends Peter Obi to Nigerians as the man who has the capacity to effectively tackle the economic, security and other challenges facing the country.

Ortom in a statement by his special adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Terver Akase, said he is convinced that Obi possesses the qualities of a leader who will be a true President of this country by guaranteeing justice, equity and fairness for all Nigerians.

“For some years, the country has been tottering on the verge of collapse, owing to leadership failure and its attendant consequences of poverty, heightened insecurity with banditry, kidnappings and other acts of terrorism threatening the very foundations of the nation.

“The President that Nigeria needs at this challenging time in the country’s history is one who understands the urgent need to unite the people and speedily initiate policies and actions to redirect the ship of the nation on the path of growth and development, and emphasizes that Peter Obi has all such qualities”, Ortom said.

He thanked Chief Obasanjo for once again demonstrating objectivity, truth and patriotism as a statesman whose views on national issues must be taken seriously.
