Speaking against the backdrop of Ortom’s defection to the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the excuse he gave for his inability to attend a meeting with the national leadership of the ruling party, Oshiomhole said,  “I wanted to simply cross check with him on the allegations made against him and he was to come by Wednesday that is why he organised that drama.

“And that tells you the quality of reasoning, with all due respect to Governor Ortom, how can you reduce governance to Nollywood, saying ‘when I wanted to go to Abuja to meet with the National Working Committee, my people blocked the road that I will not go.’

“When has it become a case that when a governor wants to travel it is on the radio that he is travelling and this is the purpose?”
