Benue poll: I’m not afraid of Supreme Court’s judgment – Gov. Ortom

The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has said he is not losing sleep over the judgment of the Supreme Court on the governorship election in the state, which has been fixed for Friday.
Ortom said the verdict would be in his favour the same way he had earlier emerged victorious at the Election Petition Tribunal and the Court of Appeal.
Ortom spoke with State House correspondents after a meeting he had with President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday.
He said: “Why will I be scared?
“Do I look like somebody who is scared?
“I have nothing to fear because I know the verdict will go my way.”
Ortom said he enjoys the mandate of the people of the state.
He expressed support for Buhari’s anti-corruption war and urged all Nigerians to support the President.
Ortiom also disclosed that the amnesty programme his administration initiated is already yielding results with illegal weapons being mopped up.
He denied reports accusing him of mismanaging his state’s bailout funds, saying the allegation was an act of ignorance.
