I’m certain of victory — Ortom

Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State said his victory was only being delayed because he would surely triumph at the end of the day.

Ortom made the remark on Monday while reacting to the state’s governorship election declared inconclusive by INEC.

He expressed confidence that he would win the elections whenever it is conducted as all the places where the exercise could not hold or results were cancelled are the PDP’s stronghold.

The governor however called for adequate security during the supplementary polls, stressing that elections were not earlier conducted in those areas due to violence allegedly unleashed in the places by the opposition party.

Ortom added that it was glaring that his winning margin cannot be taken away except those who perpetuated the violence in the first place were ready to kill all his supporters in order to have their way.

“There is no need to worry about anything because I’m good to go,” the governor maintained.
