Melaye, Ortom clash at PDP meeting over ex-governor’s support for Tinubu (Video)

Dino Melaye, the Kogi State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the Novenber 2023 governorship election in the state, on Thursday clashed with former Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, at the PDP North Central Zone leadership meeting.

In a post on his X handle on Thursday, Melaye stated that the confrontation stemmed from Ortom’s declaration of support for President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2027 election.

Melaye wrote: “Why will Ortom attend a PDP meeting after declaring support for Tinubu in 2027. Hence, my altercation with him at the PDP North Central Zone leadership meeting.”
