The Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom is confident that the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) would defeat the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the 2019 general elections.

He said that the party would take advantage of the poor performance of the current administration.

Ortom spoke on Monday in Makurdi, during an expanded caucus meeting of the party.

The governor also said Buhari’s top loyalists were hurting his chances by the “unguarded statements that had become their trademarks”

“Some of the President’s key men speak carelessly and make it difficult for the society to trust the APC,” he claimed.

He maintained that Atiku was capable of taking the country out of its current challenges, and urged Nigerians to vote him into power.
