He had described the election and the subsequent selection of the Delta State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, as his running mate as a betrayal of the ideals and decision of the party’s elders and Governors who had recommnded Governor Wike for the position.

Governor Ortom has also been at loggerheads with the Federal Government over the Security situation in Benue State which he had always ascribed to the non challant attitude of the Federal Government to the situation.
