Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has admitted he would have worked for the pres­idential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Peter Obi, if he wasn’t a member of the Peoples Demo­cratic Party (PDP).

Ortom made this remark on Wednesday when he received Obi, who was in the state to commiser­ate with residents over flooding.

The Benue governor said the 2023 presidential election will be a three-horse race between Obi, Atiku Abubakar of PDP, and Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Ortom said Nigerians need to assess the three presidential candidates and elect the person “who has the capacity to deliver and make things work for our country Nigeria.

“Let us be factual. Let us be frank with ourselves because we are toying with our future. A country of over 200 million people deserves a better leadership that is proactive, has foresight and vi­sion to make things work for our country.

“I look forward that these three candidates of the various political parties will meet and say ‘look, let this man go’.

“I am in PDP and I am working for PDP. But I tell you, if I was not in PDP, you will see me working for Peter Obi. But I am in PDP. Let’s see how things work out.
