The Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has given the condition for forgiving the former National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC Adams Oshiomhole.

Ortom said he is ready to forgive Oshiomhole if he tenders an apology.

Ortom said this on Wednesday while speaking to newsmen at the distribution of 46 vehicles to 23 local government chairpersons and leaders of the State House of Assembly in Makurdi.

Oshiomhole had sought an out-of-court settlement, at the further hearing of an N10billion libel suit Ortom instituted against him earlier this week.

Ortom had slammed the suit on Oshiomhole after he claimed the Governor had a hand in the death of two Catholic priests and parishioners at Mbalom community, Gwer East Local Government Area of Benue State.

The presiding judge, Justice Augustine Ityonyiman, adjourned the case until October 29, 2020, for the report of settlement.

Ortom clearly said he would forgive Oshiomhole
only if he goes back to the news medium, he used to vilify him and have the apology published and also meet conditions set by his (Ortom) lawyers.

“I am a Christian. The Bible says forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”

“If he comes back now to tender an apology and also go back to the same news medium he used to scandalise and vilify me to have the apology published and also meet the condition set by my lawyers, I will certainly forgive him,” Ortom said.
