…Meet in Makurdi
By Dirisu Yakubu
Governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will meet in Makurdi, the Benue state capital, Friday, to deliberate on the state of the nation, particularly the growing insecurity in the land.
The physical meeting, first of its kind since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is being hosted by Governor Samuel Ortom, and is expected to come up with implementable blueprint for tackling insecurity and sundry criminality facing the nation.
A statement signed by Cyril Maduabum, Director General of the PDP Governors’ Forum noted that the meeting will also afford the governors opportunity to review the state of the party “and finetune strategies on how to strengthen it to serve as a vanguard in the patriotic task of rescuing the nation from the rudderless All Progressives Congress, APC administration that has plunged the country into the current avoidable crises of governance.”
