Benue State governor, Samuel Ortom, has debunked the report that the zoning committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has thrown open the presidential ticket of the party.
Ortom, who is the chairman of the zoning committee of the PDP, disclosed this yesterday, in an issued statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Nathaniel Ikyur.
The governor said the panel has submitted its recommendation to the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party for further action, adding that he was misquoted on the matter.
He said, “I want to clear the insinuation that the zoning committee has thrown open the presidential ticket. I did inform the media yesterday (Tuesday, April 5) that the committee has adopted a unanimous position to be presented to the national executive committee of the party. Where did I say that the committee has thrown open the presidential ticket?”
