Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Zoning Committee and governor of Benue State, Sam Ortom, has hailed the emergence of Atiku Abubakar, noting that he will restore security in the country, revive its economy and bring back its dignity.
In a congratulatory message to the former Vice President for winning the presidential ticket of the main opposition party, the governor said on Monday that his victory at the national convention was an act of God.
Quoting from the Bible, Ortom noted that “In John 3.27, the Bible says ‘A man can receive nothing except it’s given to him from above.’
“So, for the benefit of all Nigerians for whom we strive to make society better, let us now come together under the leadership of the party and be focused to dislodge the APC who have destroyed the very essence of our nationhood, by winning the 2023 general election to restore the dignity of Nigerians both at home and in the Diaspora.”
He went on: “Let me on behalf of myself, the government and people of Benue State heartily congratulate His Excellency, Atiku Abubakar, the former Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria on his nomination as the Presidential Candidate of our great Party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the 2023 general elections.
“I believe that with your experience and goodwill across all facets of this nation, your election as the standard-bearer of the PDP is a clear indication that our party has begun the historic journey back to power in 2023.”
