Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has expressed optimism that he will win his re-election despite the inconclusive nature of the exercise.
Concise News reported that the Independent National Electoral Commission (Inec) on Monday declared Saturday’s governorship election in Benue as inconclusive.
However, while speaking in Makurdi, Ortom said: “I am comfortable because my party has the majority in the state.
“I am not contemplating of winning because I know I will surely win. APC cannot come overnight and get more votes than me.
“My party won all the three senatorial seats, six out of 11 House of Reps seats and 18 House of Assembly seats out of 30, but some assembly seats are declared inconclusive too.”
He also called on security agencies to ensure lives and properties are secured during the supplementary election.
