Ben Murray-Bruce, the Senator representing Bayelsa East, has reacted to results of the Benue governorship election.
Ortom defeated his main challenger, Emmanuel Jime of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to win his second term in office.
Announcing the result on Sunday, the Returning Officer, Prof Sebastian Maimako, said Ortom of the PDP polled 434,473 votes to humble APC’s Jime, who came behind with 345,155 votes, thus winning with 89,318 margin.
Reacting, Ben Bruce took to his official Twitter page on Monday to congratulate Ortom, adding that he is indeed the people’s choice.
He wrote: “Hearty congratulations His Excellency, Governor Samuel Ortom.
“You’re indeed the people’s choice and no delay could take this away. Your victory is a victory for the great people of Benue State. #BenueDecides”.
