Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, has denied allegations that he has agreed to mobilize support for the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress, (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu, to enable him actualize his presidential ambition in the State.
Ortom’s chief press secretary, Nathaniel Ikyur, while reacting to the rumours, dismissed it as mere speculations and urged people to refrain from listening to them.

Ikyur said, “No, it’s not true. That is not correct.” He agreed that the governor had traveled to London and is being expected back this Friday but stated that he didn’t meet with Tinubu.
“They are strategizing and have not made any such pronouncement. If they have to make any pronouncements, they would let the world know.
“They are old enough and they are experienced enough to do that. So we should not be relying on speculations and rumours,” he said.
