Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has commended the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for taking the lead in the inconclusive Osun governorship election.
Ortom gave the commendation in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase and made available to newsmen on Sunday in Abuja.
The PDP candidate, Senator Ademola Adeleke, took the lead in the election declared inconclusive by the INEC with 254,698 votes, closely followed by APC’s candidate, Gboyega Oyetola who polled 254, 345 votes.
Ortom said that the conduct of the Osun election reflected the resolve of many Nigerians to give their mandate to the PDP in the 2019 general elections.
The governor also commended the people of Osun for the peaceful manner they conducted themselves during the poll.
Ortom urged them to sustain their support for the PDP and complete the good work they had started on the day of the re-run.
