The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Benue State has reaffirmed the nomination of Chief Dr Samuel Ortom as the governorship candidate of the party in the 2015 general elections.
A statement jointly signed by state Chairman, Comrade Abba Yaro, Publicity Secretary, Baba Ayemti and Organizing Secretary, Titus Zam, and made available to journalists in Makurdi yesterday, disclosed that the APC national headquarters in Abuja has already formally forwarded Chief Dr Ortom’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
“This is to inform all members and supporters of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Benue State that Chief Dr Samuel Ortom is the duly nominated candidate of the party for the 2015 general elections, having met all the requirements of the party. His name has been formally forwarded to the INEC by the national headquarters of APC Abuja”, the statement read.
According to the party chieftains, it became necessary to issue the statement in order to put paid to the misinformation being circulated by certain people that the APC in Benue State has problems with the nomination process.
They appealed to supporters and the general public to work hard for the success of Chief Dr Ortom and other APC candidates in the 2015 polls.
