Address the issues I raised, Ortom tells presidency - Premium Times NigeriaThe Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has said that Atiku Abubakar, the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), should have consulted Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, before choosing his running mate.

Atiku picked Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate for the 2023 election.

But Ortom, speaking on Channels Television on Thursday night, claimed 14 out of 17 members of a committee set up by the PDP to guide the former vice president had preferred Wike.
