The APC governorship candidate said as a law abiding citizen, he was available to be served any court order at any time.

He said he had briefed his lawyers on the matter and was prepared to face the PDP in court.

Ortom wondered why the PDP instituted legal action against him when he had already left the party.

He contended that the court case was instituted to divert his attention from his ongoing governorship campaign in the state.

The former Minister of State for Trade and Industry said the PDP was afraid of the massive support base of the APC in the state and was trying to distract him through litigations.(NAN)
