Tribunal Ruling: Jime says he will approach Appeal Court


Nigerian Concord Newspaper

Mr Emmanuel Jime, the All Progressives Congress (APC) governorship candidate in the 2019 election in Benue, has said that he will appeal the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal judgment which upheld Gov. Samuel Ortom’s election.

Jime, who was reacting to the judgement on Tuesday, said in Makurdi that the tribunal was not fair to him and his party.

Recall that Justice Henry Olusiyi-led tribunal had, in a nine- hour judgment on Monday, dismissed Jime’s petition for lack of merit, and upheld the reelection of Governor Ortom.
