Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has reacted to the judgement of the Court of Appeal which affirmed his re-election.
Ortom in a statement by Terver Akase, commended the judgement and described it as a victory for the people of the state.
According to Ortom, the appellate court’s verdict has not only validated the earlier judgement of the Governorship Election Tribunal but also confirmed the choice of Benue voters in the 2019 polls.
He also thanked God for giving him the opportunity to lead the state for another term and appreciated the leadership and members of PDP in the state, as well as the people of the state.
He then called on the APC candidate and other contestants in the last election to join hands with him to develop Benue State.
Ortom also expressed willingness to collaborate with sons and daughters of the state irrespective of political differences, ethnicity, religion and place of origin, for a greater Benue.
