Youths in their numbers have prevented the governor of Benue state, Samuel Ortom, from meeting with the national leadership of the All Progressives Congress, (APC).
The youth stormed the Benue Government House on Wednesday, urging the governor to resign his membership of the APC.
Ortom is expected to meet with the chairman of the APC, Adams Oshiomhole and other leaders of the APC in Abuja.
Leader of the protesting youths, Dave Ogbole, dared the governor to crush them and embark on his trip, according to ChannelsTV.
Mr. Ogbole said, “If the governor insists on travelling to Abuja for the APC meeting, he will risk losing the support of the people”.
Despite the governors’ plea to allow him to attend the meeting as agreed by parties to the ongoing internal crisis in the state, the youths stood their grounds until the governor’s convoy made a U-turn back. (Daily Trust)
