PDP G5 Governors Wll Support Tinubu In 2027 – Samuel Ortom



The immediate-past governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, says the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, G5 Governors will support President Bola Tinubu if he seeks re-election in 2027.

Ortom spoke on Sunday at an event organised by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike, in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The G5 governors are Wike, Ortom, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, former governor of Enugu; Seyi Makinde, governor of Oyo, and Okezie Ikpeazu, former governor of Abia.

They refused to back the presidential bid of PDP candidate, former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, during the 2023 general election.

According to the former Benue governor, Tinubu is a seasoned administrator and should be allowed to fix the country.

Ortom said, “Our leader, Nyesom Wike, has already made a declaration that in 2027, we are supporting President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

“We have nowhere to go because that is what Nigerians believe. Even the past administration that took Nigeria from top to bottom, we allowed them to work for eight years. So, why can’t a seasoned administrator in the person President Bola Ahmed Tinubu rule us for eight years?”
