The attention of our party, the All Progressives Congress, APC, Benue State chapter, has been drawn to the false and mischievous news item aired on radio Benue, Ashiwaves and other media houses about the alleged rejection of Chief Dr Ortom as APC governorship candidate for Benue State by INEC.
Legally, it is not in the place of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to nominate candidates for political parties.
Chief Dr Ortom is APC governorship candidate for Benue State.
He has not been rejected or disqualified by INEC and there is no basis for such rejection.
The tissue of lies about Ortom’s alleged rejection is orchestrated by those threatened by his overwhelming popularity and acceptability by the good people of Benue State.
Supporters, members of APC and the general public are enjoined to disregard this false propaganda and other campaigns of calumny against the person of Dr Samuel Ortom by his evidently frustrated and panicky opponents.
We hereby enjoin our teeming supporters to continue to work assiduously to return Chief Dr Samuel Ortom as governor of Benue State come 26th February, 2015.
Comrade Abba Yaro, Chairman, APC Benue State.
Hon. Titus T Zam, Organizing Secretary.
Hon. Baba Ayemti, Publicity Secretary.
