Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Monday assured that the issues dividing the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the national level would soon be overcome.
Ortom during an expanded PDP stakeholders meeting at the Government House in Makurdi, hinted that the different factions were already tackling the matters dividing them.
The party’s national chairman, Dr Iyorchia Ayu, had been at loggerheads with the G-5 Governors comprising Nyesom Wike (Rivers), Okezie Ikpeazu (Abia), Seyi Makinde (Oyo), Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi (Enugu) and Samuel Ortom (Benue) who are calling for his resignation.
But, Ortom had expressed optimism during the meeting that the ongoing reconciliation would yield fruitful result.
“We’re quite committed to ensuring that we (PDP) win the elections. Those issues that would have divided us, we are tackling them.
“We have issues at the national level but we’re trusting that by the grace of God, we will overcome them,” the governor said.
