A major milestone has has been recorded by the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Benue as the state governor, Samuel Ortom officially dumped his party, the All Progressives Congress, APC for the PDP. The governor announced his defection on Wednesday, July 25, 2018 at the Government House. 

By this development, Benue State which since 2015 had been governed by the APC is now a PDP state.

The governor’s announcement brings to end months of speculation that the governor will return to the PDP as a result of his disagreement with leaders of the APC in the state and at the national level despite several interventions to bring warring party to a truce.

His defection comes on the heels of the impeachment of the State Assembly Speaker and his Deputy as well as some principal officers of the assembly, yesterday, July 24, 2018.
