The Governor on Sunday, speaking through his Special Adviser on Media and ICT, Tahav Agerzua, gave reasons he defected from the party.

Agerzua addressed reporters in Makurdi, the State capital, explaining that the lack of internal democracy within the ranks of the party in the state contributed in no small measure for his decision.

He said, “You have a situation where a powerful individual high jacked every structure of the party and excluded all other stakeholders including senators and members of the National Assembly and key party members.

“Besides, major stakeholders in the state advised Governor Ortom to leave the APC because of the federal government’s alleged complicity in the ongoing killings in the country including Benue state.
