Benue State Governor, Dr Samuel Ortom, has won the Peoples Democratic Party primary in the state.

The governor got 2,210 votes with his closest rival, Mr John Tondo, getting 475 votes.

In all, 3,748 delegates participated in the primary, which was held at the Aper Aku Stadium in Makurdi, the state capital.

Governor Ortom’s predecessor Gabriel Suswam and the immediate past Senate President, David Mark, were among those who participated in the primary.

The governor had defected from the All Progressives Congress to the PDP in August after accusing the APC of effectively sidelining him.
