Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Thursday criticised the national leadership of his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for their failure to resolve the disagreement with several disgruntled party chieftains. reports that Ortom accused the Iyorchia Ayu-led National Working Committee (NWC) of arrogance.

The PDP has been embroiled in an internal dispute which has polarised the opposition party since mid-last year.

As a result, Ortom and four other governors (G5) refused to openly support their party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

Giving an update on the rancour, Ortom said there is no new development.

Speaking with journalists, Governor Ortom said: “So, no efforts by the leadership of our party have been able to address the issues that we are raising.

“They have not been able to adopt methods that will pacify and placate the G5. This is not right. So, on the G5, that is where we are.

“Arrogance, impunity, mischief, will not really help matters.

“One will expect that humility, it is said that you stoop down to conquer even if you want to make it.”
