The Supreme Court of Nigeria has delivered a final judgment on the Benue governorship election.

YaahooJournalist reports that the Supreme Court affirmed the election of governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state.

In a unanimous judgment by a seven-man panel of justices led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, the Supreme court dismissed the appeal that was lodged against Ortom by the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), in the state, Emmanuel Jime.

Justice Sylvester Ngwuta who read the lead judgment said the panel found no reason to disturb the concurrent decisions of both the tribunal and the Court of Appeal that returned Governor Ortom as the valid winner of the March 9, 2019, Benue governorship election.
