Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has said that he has been given a red card by the All Progressive Congress ( APC)
The governor spoke at Government House Makurdi on Monday while swearing -in the new Special Adviser on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Jerome Tor Shine.
The former adviser was sacked last week in a new political realignment move.
Governor Ortom who was elected on the platform of APC is now believed to be heading to the People’s Democratic Party ( PDP), which is in alliance with Social Democratic Party( SDP)
” APC has given me red card, they shut me outside ,I’m now party less ,but may soon decide my next journey” , Ortom said.
But speaking with The Nation on phone, a member of APC who pleaded anonymity said the governor is already a member of PDP.
He advised the governor to tell his followers the truth about his new political party.
Despite his explanation, Governor Ortom’s posters bearing APC flooded Wurkukum roundabout in Makurdi .
Many residents who saw the posters pasted round the busy roundabout gathered to discuss the issue of the party the governor now belongs.
