The defeated governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Terhemen Tarzoor has congratulated the governor-elect, Chief Samuel Ortom of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for his emergence as governor.
Tarzoor said his loss in the governorship does not in anyway mean he is rejected by the people but rather, he stated that Ortom’s victory is a new wind of change that is blowing through the nation.
A statement signed by the Director General of Tarzoor/Ngbede campaign organization, Prof. Iyorwuese Hagher said Tarzoor had earlier called Ortom by telephone to salute him over the victory well deserved.
It said, “Rt. Terhemen Tarzor sends his congratulations to Chief Samuel Ortom and the APC over the victory at the polls.
It further said “Tarzoor has reservations concerning the conduct of the elections by INEC commissioner, Istafanus Dafwang, but in the spirit of the greater Benue State, prefers that we move forward.”
“Rather he (Tarzoor) considers the election results as a new wind of change that is blowing through the nation and making serious demands on leaders to live up to the true calling of leadership as people who must give sovereignty, respect and dignity to the people,” It stated.
