Obi has impeccable credentials for the job – Gov Ortom

The Governor of Benue state, Dr. Samuel Ortom has described the Labour Party, LP Presidential Candidate, Mr Peter Obi  as a man with impeccable credentials to run the affairs of this country.

Governor Ortom’s lavish eulogies on Obi came after the Labour Party flagbearer paid him a courtesy call at his private residence in Makurdi where the two leaders met behind closed doors before jointly addressing journalists.

The PDP governor said Obi was one among those qualified Nigerians that the people were looking forward to lead this country as he wished him well.

Governor Ortom said that the situation in this country calls for all to be careful and pray to God for leaders who mean well for the survival of this country.

He challenged presidential candidates of the various political parties in the coming general elections to put Nigeria above personal interests.

According to him, Nigerians were in dire need of people with “commitment and competence” that would fix the leadership crisis that had plunged the country into outright chaos noting  that the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Obi was one among those qualified Nigerians that the people were looking forward to having to take the country out of the leadership conundrum.

“Governor Ortom commended the decision of the former Anambra Governor to engage Nigerians, especially major players in the country’s politics, irrespective of political leaning on his desire to serve as the country’s next President.

“He said even though he was a major stakeholder of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the candidate considered him as a Nigerian to consult on his aspiration,” the statement read.

The Labour Party Presidential candidate also spoke about the reason why he visited the governor saying that the visit was to show respect to his former political ally in the PDP.

Obi noted that though they were now in different political parties, their friendship as citizens of the country was most important.

In his response to the question that he did not have the needed structures to win elections, Obi reiterated that the millions of Nigerians who had been impoverished by bad leadership over an extended period “are my structures to win.”
