By Bridget Ikyado

The Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Makurdi has revalidated the victory of His Excellency Rev. Fr. Dr. Hyacinth Alia as the duly elected governor of the state.

The tribunal in its verdict reaffirmed the sacred mandate freely expressed and given to him by the people of the state at the polls.

This is contained in a statement by Sir Tersoo Kula,Chief Press Secretary to the Governor of Benue State on Saturday in Makurdi.

Reacting to the judgement, Governor Alia says it is victory for democracy and the rule of law. He says the court has indicated once again that it is the last hope of the common man and that no might is powerful enough to thwart the supreme will of the people, and claim power through the back door.

His Excellency assures the good people of the state that he is committed to putting the welfare of the state ahead of self. He appreciates and recognizes the fact that his victory is that of the people to whom sovereignty and power truly belongs.

Governor Alia rededicates himself to the service of the people and the strengthening of democratic values across the state.

He enjoins all and sundry including members of the opposition to put their hands on deck and ensure that the state is moved to very heights of greatness away from the current mess of misery, poverty and maladministration.
