Supreme Court Upholds Samuel Ortom's Election As Benue Governor

The supreme court has upheld the election of Samuel Ortom as the governor of Benue state.

Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, who led a seven-man panel, dismissed the appeal of Emmanuel Jime, candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the March gubernatorial election, for lacking in merit.

Jime had challenged Ortom's reelection on the grounds of substantial noncompliance with the provisions of Electoral Act, 2010 as amended.
