The All Progressives Congress (APC), Benue State chapter, has congratulated Governor Samuel Ortom over his victory at the Benue State Election Petitions Tribunal.
The party also hailed all Benue people for their continued solidarity with the party and confidence in the ability and capacity of the governor to deliver them from the misery occasioned by PDP misrule.
Reacting to the judgment of the Tribunal in Makurdi, the State Secretary of the party, Hon. Onov Tyuulugh, said the party had considered the petition of Hon. Tarzoor and the PDP as an act of dynamic inactivity but had to diligently respond to it in accordance with due process of the Change Mantra. Hon. Tyuulugh declared that, the PDP was trusting in the possibility of a Judicial Rigging; where they would usurp the mandate of the people freely given to the APC through the happenstance of a mischievous judicial pronouncement; what never happened.
The APC State Secretary said, Hon. Tarzoor himself had admitted that he had lost the election; and wondered what gave him the temerity to challenge the will of the people if he was truly a democrat. As for the PDP, Hon. Onov Tyuulugh said, the party lost its democratic content and the confidence of the people long ago and had always depended on rigging and manipulation of democratic and judicial processes.
The State secretary added that, “those days were gone forever. The PDP should therefore content itself with the role of a virile opposition party, apologize to Benue people for the unnecessary distraction of challenging the mandate so freely given and prepare themselves for 2019.”
The APC scribe appreciated the Nigerian Judiciary for its diligence and meticulousness and said the APC will continue to have confidence and trust in the Judiciary and its functionaries as the last sanctuary of hope for the oppressed masses if change must subsist.
He appealed to the Judiciary to remain focused and committed to justice and the cause of the down trodden.
Hon. Onov Tyuulugh finally assured Benue people of their determination and commitment to deliver on their campaign promises and serve the people conscientiously as against the roguery, carelessness, and impunity that was the character and content of the PDP political misadventure for 16 years.
He called on Benue people to continue to trust Governor Samuel Ortom as he meant well and was committed to serving them selflessly
