APC National Chairman Oshiomhole
The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Comrade Adams Oshiomhole has said Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has not been kicked out of the party.
He was reacting to developments that Governor Ortom had been given the “red card.”
Oshiomhole spoke on Monday in Abuja shortly after a meeting of its National Working Committee.
According to him, the governor has promised him he will not leave the APC unless he was asked to do so.
He said : “Governor Ortom had told me severally that he will not leave the APC unless he was pushed out and I know that we have not pushed him out.”
Ortom at the swearing in of the newly appointed Special Adviser on Local Government and Chieftaincy Affairs, Jerome Torshimbe, said “for party, I’ve been given the red card and I’m now outside the pitch.”
Ortom’s Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, quoted the governor as saying that, “So, if I have been given the red card and I’m standing outside, that means I’m a free man.”
