A serving governor in Northern Nigeria and member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Zoning Committee, Samuel Ortom, has declared his support publicly for the presidential bid of the governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike.
In an interview with Arise News Television monitored by Newsportal, Ortom said Governor Wike always fought for justice, equity and fairness.
He said, “I will support Wike for Presidency”.
Ortom, however, added that if the PDP chooses another person as its presidential flag bearer, he would support the person as, according to him, “party is supreme.”
It should be recalled that Governor Ortom was the Chairman of the 37 man Zoning Committee of the PDP that has completed its task and submitted its position to the National Executive Committee, NEC, of the party.
He disclosed that as a person, the Presidency of Nigeria should be zoned to the South.
On the issue of insecurity in Nigeria, he said his State has been under the siege of bandits, as they have continued to attack his people.
