Abuja (Sundiata Post) -. In a bid to strengthen the PDP family ahead of the 2023 general elections, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State on Tuesday, May 17th, 2022 visited former President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan at his sprawling Maitama residence in Abuja.
Governor Ortom served as Minister of State, Trade and Investment and later the supervising Minister of Ministry of Aviation in President Jonathan’s government.
According to the statement signed by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Benue state, Nathaniel Ikyur, the duo met behind closed doors for more than 40 minutes and discussed frankly.
Although none of them spoke to the press when they came out, they were beaming with smiles with the former President exchanging pleasantaries with everyone on the Governors entourage.
