Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has revealed the reason he met the Labour Party, LP, presidential candidate, Peter Obi, Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, among others.
He spoke on Tuesday while addressing journalists after returning from Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
IDOMA VOICE reports that Obi had met with Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, Governor of Abia State, Okezie Ikpeazu; former Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Mohammed Adoke.
Others at the meeting include former Governor of Ondo State, Olusegun Mimiko; former Governor of Cross River State, Donald Duke; and former Governor of Gombe State, Ibrahim Dankwanbo, among others.
However, Ortom said he couldn’t turn down a request to attend such meetings.
According to Ortom: “At the end, the solution to the challenges of Nigeria is what matters. Where we are today calls for all hands to be on deck.
“I am free to receive any candidate who comes visiting or seeking an audience with me. I cannot say no when such a request comes.”
