Former Interior Minister Abba Moro has emerged as the PDP candidate for Benue South Senatorial District ahead of the 2019 general election.
Moro won the party’s ticket by polling 461 votes to defeat his nearest rival Hon. Joseph Ojobo, a one time member of the State House of Assembly, who polled 365 votes.
Secretary of the PDP Benue South Senatorial Electoral Committee, Sunny Agbade, announced that over 1,000 adhoc and statutory delegates participated in the primaries.
And in his acceptance speech, Moro assured the people of good representation and his determination to serve them better as a senator.
The polls had been postponed from October 4 to October 7 when three other local government councils could not participate in the exercise on account of accreditation.
