The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom on Saturday said that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has learnt from its mistakes and is ready to return to power in 2023.

Speaking on Saturday in Makurdi, Ortom said the opposition party is better positioned to wrestle power from the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

“PDP as a party made mistakes in the past and has learnt a lot of lessons from its mistakes and it is fully prepared to take over the leadership of the country from the APC.

“Nobody should deceive you that PDP is polarised. We are working together as a party.

“We met and agreed that the positions which are currently in the North should go to the South, while those in the South should go to the North.

“This is the resolution of the Zoning Committee and it is graciously accepted at the national level. Nobody has begrudged the decision. It is widely accepted by all PDP members,” he said.

Asked if he planned to contest the senatorial election in 2023, Ortom said he is consulting God. “If He says yes, I will go ahead and contest but if He says no, I will obey His decision.”
