Benue State Governorship Election: Tribunal Reserves Judgment

The Benue State governorship election petitions tribunal has reserved judgment in a petition filed by Emmanuel Jime and the All Progressive Congress (APC) challenging the victory of Governor Samuel Ortom of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The tribunal said a date will be announced later when the judgment would be made.

Jime and the APC filed the petition on the grounds that Ortom was not duly elected by a majority of lawful votes.

The PDP had asked the tribunal to dismiss Jime’s petition and that of his party for lacking in “evidential and material” value.

PDP’s counsel, Chris Uche, moved the motion before the tribunal while adopting their final written addresses by parties before the Justice Henry Oluseyi-led panel.
