Obi will guarantee justice, fairness for all Nigerians – Ortom


The governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom has thrown his weight behind the endorsement of the Labour Party’s Presidential candidate, Mr Peter Obi by ex-President Olusegun Obasanjo.

In his New Year message to Nigerian youths, Obasanj endorsed Obi’s presidential bid, saying that he has the edge over the other candidates.

Ortom, in a statement by Terver Akase, his spokesperson, said if he were not a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), he would have personally led Obi’s campaign across the country.

Ortom said he is convinced that Obi “possesses the qualities of a leader who will be a true president of this country by guaranteeing justice, equity and fairness for all Nigerians”.
