Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has ruled out defecting to the All Progressives Congress, APC, after leaving office.

Ortom, on the other hand, has pledged to support and work for President-elect Bola Tinubu as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.

On Wednesday's Arise Television Morning Show, the governor stated that he would continue to ensure equity and justice in Nigeria.

Ortom stated that he strove to establish a southern presidency because he desired equity and justice.

He said: “That is not on my table, I’m in PDP, and I worked for the Southern presidency, which Tinubu and Obi were part of. Defecting is not on my table now.

“If Tinubu is sworn in, I will continue to pray and support him to succeed.

“I remain the leader of PDP in Benue State but will continue to work for equity and justice in Nigeria.”
