The Supreme Court on Tuesday affirmed the election of Samuel Ortom as the duly elected governor of Benue State.

Emmanuel Jime of the All Progressives Congress (APC), had dragged Ortom to court over allegations of over-voting and other electoral malpractices during the 2019 governorship elections.

In a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Sylvester Ngwuta, the apex court agreed with the concurrent findings of the election petition tribunal and the Court of Appeal that Ortom was the winner of the election.
