Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Thursday said he was consulting with God on his choice for president in 2023.
He made the comment on Channels Television’s Politics Today.
Mr Ortom is a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) but he has accused the party’s presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar of not properly consulting stakeholders in choosing a running mate.
While reiterating that the party is supreme, Mr Ortom said he is “hibernating” when asked if he may consider supporting a candidate outside the PDP.
“I am into hibernation,” he said. “I am praying. Let me go spiritual. The bible says, ‘as many as are led by the spirit of God are the sons of God’.
“I want to be led by God. After my prayers, God will direct me.
“When I say I am confused, I have to go back to the drawing board and ask God, what should I do?
“So, by the time I come out of hibernation, I will know what to do.”
