The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, today said his Rivers State counterpart, Nyesom Wike, and others who backed Wike for the PDP vice-presidential ticket slot deserve a detailed explanation from the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar.

He also said he had resorted to fasting and prayers to seek God’s direction after the emergence of Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as the running mate to Atiku ahead of Wike.

Ortom, who said this during an interview said it was surprising that Atiku could jettison the recommendation of 14 out of 17 members of the committees that recommended Wike as his running mate.

Atiku had after announcing Okowa as his running mate clarified that he picked the Delta governor because he had the qualities to be a President, adding that he “is a President-in-waiting.”
