How Or­tom will win again in 2019 — APC chair

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

The Chair­man of APC in Benue State, Com­rade Em­manuel Abba Yaro, has said that al­leged op­po­si­tion from po­lit­i­cal ad­ver­saries will not stop Gov­er­nor Sa­muel Or­tom from win­ning a sec­ond term in 2019.

Com­rade Yaro said this yes­ter­day while field­ing ques­tions from jour­nal­ists at the APC na­tional sec­re­tariat, in Abuja.

He said those call­ing for his (Yaro’s) res­ig­na­tion and ac­cus­ing him of tak­ing uni­lat­eral de­ci­sions were not “real APC mem­bers,” but those al­ready plan­ning to join the So­cial Demo­cratic Party (SDP).

“We will win in 2019; Or­tom will cer­tainly win be­cause the man has done bril­liantly well. He is the man who came and put the school of nurs­ing in or­der. It was al­most sealed up; the man came, ren­o­vated it and got ac­cred­i­ta­tion for the school,” he said.
