No fewer than thirty-six (36) political parties have endorsed Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, north-central Nigeria,  for a second term in office.

Naija News understands that political parties, under the aegis of Forum of Registered Political Parties, Benue State, gave their endorsement during a courtesy visit to the governor at the Benue Government House, in Makurdi, the Benue state capital.

Godwin Odeh, the Chairman of the forum, said the parties took the decision after carefully assessing the goodwill and efforts of the governor in the defence of the Benue Valley.

Odeh said through their expanded networks, they had fought tirelessly to ensure that Benue land is not surrendered to both external and internal oppressors.

The Chairman, who expressed the commitment of the forum to the struggle for a better and free Benue, noted that it was for that reason they resolved to channel their networks through, their structures, to mobilise their members to vote for Ortom on Saturday.

Also speaking, a House of Representatives aspirant, on the platform of the Social Democratic Party (SDP),
Franc Utov expressed the confidence that the margin of governor Ortom’s victory in next Saturday’s polls would be in the ratio of 90 to 10 per cent.

Responding, Governor Ortom thanked the various parties and their candidates for their support.

The Benue Governor said together, they would work to ensure victory for him and the PDP.

Governor Ortom also enjoined the electorate not to be intimidated by threats from the opposition that federal might would be deployed to win the elections, saying Benue people are the might as far as the state is concerned.
