Appeal Court Reaffirms Ortom’s Victory As Governor Of Benue State       

Funsho Akinwale

The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Thursday reaffirmed the election of Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State.

The appellate court, after dismissing the appeal filed by Emmanuel Jime, the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress, noted that the evidence before the court lacked enough merit to challenge the sitting governor.

The Justice, apart from resolving all the issues against the petitioner, awarded him a N150,000 fine.

Ortom is presently serving his second term in office on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after defecting from the APC.
