Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has assured the people of the State not to be swayed from voting the candidates of their choice in the forthcoming elections because of fear that the elections may be rigged.

He said the introduction of Bimodal Voting Accreditation System, BVAS, by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, will make it impossible for anyone to attempt to rig the elections.

Governor Ortom, who spoke on Monday, while addressing PDP supporters at campaign rallies in Tarka, Buruku and Gboko Local Government Areas where scores of APC members and those from other political parties dumped their former parties and joined the PDP, expressed confidence that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, will win all its elections in the State.

The massive defection of members from other parties into the PDP came as traditional and religious leaders in Tarka, Buruku and Gboko LGAs offered prayers for the election of Ortom as Senator to represent Benue North-West and Engr. Titus Uba as Governor in the February and March elections.

Addressing the party supporters, Governor Ortom stated that with the overwhelming acceptability of the PDP in the State, he was confident that the party will win its gubernatorial, senatorial, House of Representatives and State Assembly seats by landslide victory.

He maintained that the APC administration at the federal level has failed Nigerians and particularly Benue State.

He cited insecurity, poor economy and oppression of the people as reasons Benue people must vote against the party.

The Governor urged the people to vote massively for PDP candidates in the State to enable them to collaborate as a team to sustain the fight against oppression of Benue and its people and all other injustices meted out on them.
