Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, on Tuesday appealed to those he may have offended in the course of his service as governor of the state to forgive him.
This is as he had declared his decision to withdraw the case he instituted at the election petition tribunal where he was challenging the victory of the senator elect of the Benue North West senatorial district, Titus Zam in the February 25 presidential and national assembly elections.
Recall that the senatorial aspiration of governor Ortom was dashed following his colossal defeat in the February 25th when he lost to his former aide, Titus Zam.
The governor, while reacting to his loss then had argued that he was going to challenge the outcome of the election in court as he hinged his decision to what he described as non-transmission of results.
Contrary to that, while addressing journalists on Tuesday after meeting with stakeholders from his constituency and members of his campaign council at government house in Makurdi, Ortom said that he had decided to withdraw his case at the tribunal.
“Though there was glaring evidence of malpractices including non-transmission of results electronically during the conduct of the Benue North West Senatorial election, I have taken the decision to withdraw my case from the tribunal.”
