Former Benue governor, Samuel Ortom, has announced that the G5 group within the Peoples Democratic Party will support President Bola Tinubu’s re-election in 2027.
The G5 group consists of Ortom, Nyesom Wike, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, Okezie Ikpeazu, and Seyi Makinde.
According to the Nation, Ortom made this known at a luncheon hosted by Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike on Sunday.
Ortom expressed no regrets for supporting Tinubu’s victory in the last election and stated that the group will once again back Tinubu for a second term as Nigeria’s president in 2027.
Ortom assured Nigerians that Tinubu will address issues related to security, economy, and other critical challenges facing the citizens.
Ortom said: “If we work to ensure Bola Ahmed succeeds, there will be tomorrow for anybody to even contest the election at all.
“Our leader, Nyesom Wike, has already made a declaration that in 2027, we are supporting President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“We have nowhere to go because that is what Nigerians believe. Even the past administration that took Nigeria from top to bottom, we allowed them to work for eight years.
“So, why can’t a seasoned administrator in the person President Bola Ahmed Tinubu rule us for eight years.”
