Dr. Samuel Ortom

The Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) Benue state chapter has dragged Chief Samuel Ortom and APC to court .
In a writ of summon filed by Counsel to PDP, Barr Andrew Wombo , the party claimed that Chief Ortom is still a member of PDP, as he has not resigned proper.
For APC, PDP alleged that there was no primaries and ask INEC not to forward the name of chief Ortom as APC governorship candidate .
When the matter came out for mentioning  today Barrister Wombo told the court that INEC and APC has been served, except chief Ortom who has evade service and applied for substituted service which Justice Binta Nyako granted that it should be placed on his gate .

Meanwhile, the governorship aspirant has declared that he is ready for any court case and would willingly accept court papers any time, any day.

According to  Dr Ortom,as a law abiding citizen who had committed no crime and had always played by the rules he was not scared of any litigation adding however, that no bailiff had approached him with any papers on the matter, even as he had been accessible all this time.
He further added that  his lawyers were also standing by to respond to any issues the PDP had raised in the suit once the papers in which their cause has been disclosed are received, but wondered why they would institute a case against him when he had left that party.

The former Minister of State, Industry, Trade, and Investment drew the attention of the journalists to his recent statement in which he alerted members of the public about plans of the ruling party to attack him from several flanks.
He said the plans included litigation, physical attacks on him, his supporters and campaign offices as well as concerted smear, mischief and calumny targeted at intimidating him and dampening the spirit of APC and the electorate.
Chief Dr Ortom stated that the desperate measures arose from the dwindling electoral fortunes and imminent defeat awaiting the PDP at the forthcoming polls judging from the soaring popularity and acceptability of the APC throughout the state.
