Benue Guber: #PDP Candidate Advised To Withdraw Petition Against #APC

The petition filed against the victory of the All Progressives Congress ( APC ) Governorship candidate in Benue State, Chief Samuel Ortom, by his defeated Peoples Democratic Party ( PDP) opponent, Hon. Terhemen Tarzoor, has been described as an insult to the Benue electorate.


A civil rights activist, Comrade Philip Agbese, who said this yesterday in a statement, called on the petitioner to withdraw the case immediately in the interest of the peace and development of Benue State.

Comrade Agbese, who made this declaration in a text entitled, A TIME TO HEAL, described as illogical, the decision to file the petition against Chief Samuel Ortom after publicly accepting defeat and allowing same to settle in the minds of the people.

Agbese advised the PDP to desist from distracting the new regime through court cases and concentrate on its new position as an opposition party as the Benue electorate had clearly rejected them as signified in the results of the polls.

“We respect the fact that the PDP got a sizeable number at the polls which shows that a certain population of Benue people still want them in power but we should be clear to ourselves that the overall result is a clear case of rejection and bold statement that whatever good thing in the kitty can wait till another day”, he said.

He therefore urged the petitioner to rather concentrate on how to recover his campaign funds from his party men who chosed to invest such in their hotel businesses.
