2027 : G5 will still support President Tinubu in 2027 – Ortom

Former Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, on Sunday stated that the PDP G5 group will support President Bola Tinubu’s re-election in 2027 saying the group has no regret for supporting the president in the last poll

The former governor made this known on Sunday at a luncheon hosted by the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Nyesom Wike at his Port Harcourt residence.

Ahead of the presidential poll, Ortom alongside former governors Okezie Ikpeazu, Ifeanyi Ugwanyi, Nyesom Wike, and Governor Seyi Makinde who make up the group rejected Atiku Abubakar as the Peoples Democratic Party’s presidential candidate vowing to back a southern candidate.


The poll was eventually won by President Bola Tinubu of the All Progressives Congress.

While Wike joined Tinub’s cabinet, Ortom, Ikpeazu, and Ugwanyi all lost their senatorial bids.

Addressing the gathering at Lucheon, Ortom declared that the PDP G5 will again back the ex-Lagos governor for a second term in office as Nigeria’s President.

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?” he asked.
