BENUE PDP CONGRATULATES GOV. ORTOM OVER VICTORY AT SUPREME COURT
The Benue State Chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) under the leadership of State Chairman, Sir John Ngbede, congratulates the state's Governor, His Excellency, Samuel Ortom, over his victory at the Supreme Court earlier today.
A Panel of 7 Justices of the apex court delivered a unanimous judgement which held that the Appeal brought before it by defeated Governorship Candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Emmanuel Jime, challenging the victory of the Benue State governor at the 2019 election lacked merit and summarily dismissed it.
PDP in Benue is delighted by this development which the party believes has opened a new vista for the Ortom administration to accelerate on its drive to move the state forward in terms of peace, security and development.
State Chairman Ngbede calls on the opposition in the state to accept the verdict of the apex court as the closing of one chapter and embrace the necessary need to open another for the ultimate good of Benue.
Sir Ngbede on behalf of the State Executive Committee of the party also congratulates party's faithful whom he gives profound credit to for the victory won today at the Supreme Court.
The State Chairman expresses a deep sense of pride at what he describes as unwavering support given to the party by its supporters all through the campaigns and elections, and through the litigation process.
Benue PDP believes that going forward a new Benue is possible with the support of the people for the administration of His Excellency, Governor Samuel Ortom.
Long Live Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)
Long Live Benue State
Long Live Federal Republic of Nigeria.
