Court affirms Samuel Ortom as Benue State governor


Samuel Ortom of Benue State has been affirmed as Governor of the state by the Court of Appeal in Abuja on Thursday.  

A five-man panel led by Justice Fred Oho resolved the five issues in the appeal and dismissed the appeal filed by the All Progressives Congress and its governorship candidate, Emmanuel Jime in the last election held in the state, saying it lacked merit. 

In addition to that, the court also awarded N150,000 fine against the APC candidate.

The Court of Appeal upheld its earlier judgement that Samuel Ortom of the People’s Democratic Party was the winner of the Benue State Governorship.
