Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State will on Saturday commence his defence in the petition against him before the Governorship Election Petition Tribunal.
Naija News reports that the petition was filed by the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the State, Barr. Emmanuel Jime.
Jime is challenging the re-election of Governor Ortom of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the March 23 governorship election in the state.
Ortom, who is likely to be called as a witness, arrived at the court at exactly 8:50 a.m., on Saturday.
