Atiku Abubakar, Presidential Candidate of the main opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP has been reassured of the overwhelming support of Benue people to his victory in the 2019 general elections.
Governor Samuel Ortom gave assurance Tuesday at Benue Peoples House Makurdi during a courtesy call on him by the North Central Women Unite for Atiku, led by its President, Dorcas Din.
Ortom declared that time has come for Atiku to become President of Nigeria, noting that when God permits, nobody objects, as it is time for Atiku to lead Nigeria, as all things were working towards his success.
He stated that the Presidential Candidate of the PDP has the capacity to provide purposeful leadership for Nigerians as well as dethrone economic sabotage and imminent collapse of institutions under the present administration.
The Governor noted that it was hypocritical and deceitful for the APC-led federal government to demonize opposition members by sending antigraft agencies after them, only for the same people to become “saints” whenever they join the APC.
Ortom who is the North Central Cordinator of Atiku/Obi Presidential Campaign Organization, tasked the women on prayers and works that would ensure the victory of PDP in all elections next year.
While acknowledging the commitment of the women to the Atiku project, he said their powerful delegation was an indication that the North Central is poised to ensure massive votes for PDP in the coming elections.
He assured the women of the support of his administration to ensure resounding victory for Atiku, himself and other PDP candidates stating that when women are empowered, a nation benefits.
Earlier, National President of the North Central Women Unite for Atiku, Dorcas Din said the women had fared badly in the past three years under the APC administration at the federal level and would not want to remain like that for the next four years, emphasizing that they were all out to help ‘change the change’ by mobilising the women folk to vote out the APC government.
