The lawmaker representing Benue North-East Senatorial District, Gabriel Suswam says he will approach the court to reclaim his mandate from Mr. Emmanuel Udende of the All Progressives Congress, APC, who was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission in the February 25 Elections.

The former Benue Governor in a statement issued Monday in Makurdi by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Bede Bartholomew, insisting that he would not concede defeat because the election was marred by irregularities and discrepancies.

Senator Suswam also called on Benue people to come out en masse to vote for the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP governorship candidate, Mr. Titus Uba in the March 11 governorship and State Assembly elections.

According to him, the Benue people deserve a tested and trusted professional in the person of the PDP gubernatorial candidate, Mr. Uba to take the state to the next level.

“Uba has the capacity to take Benue State to another level of development and deserves to be given the mandate of the people,” he said.

The statement added that Senator Suswam had earlier met with Governor Samuel Ortom and other leaders of the PDP towards achieving victory for Mr. Uba and other candidates of the party in the elections.

He asked his “supporters and all PDP members in the state to go out massively and campaign vigorously for Uba as well as other candidates of the party to emerge victorious at the polls.”
