Ortom didn't win election but I accepted appeal court judgement - APC's Jime
Nov. 28, 2019
Emmanuel Jime, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last gubernatorial election in Benue state, on Thursday, November 28, said he has accepted the outcome of the appellate court in good faith.
Daily Trust reports that Jime, however, said in a statement by his spokesman, Kula Tersoo, in Makurdi, that Ortom did not win the 2019 gubernatorial election in Benue.
“Today too, we receive the Court of Appeal judgement in good faith, but remain resolute in our contention that, by the majority of lawful votes cast, Samuel Ortom did not win that election.
“I will meet with our team of lawyers and together we shall carefully study this judgement and decide on the next line of action,” he stated.
Jime, however, urged his supporters, party faithfuls and others he described as the true advocates of genuine change to remain calm and await his next decision.
It was reported that the court dismissed the case for lacking in merit after which the PDP governor commended the judgement which affirmed his re-election.
In a statement issued by his chief press secretary, Terver Akase, Ortom dedicated his victory to the people of Benue.
He said the judgement is a victory for the people of the state who gave him a second term mandate.
