Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has warned anyone planning to intimidate the electorate in order to manipulate the 2019 election to desist from such move.
Ortom made this known on Sunday while addressing journalists in Jos on the need to ensure a credible, free and fair election.
”We hear that people are scheming to win elections at all cost; some have openly boasted that they will use force to subvert the people’s wish.
”We are on ground and ready to confront anyone with such idea. As long as government is willing to conduct free and fair elections, we are there to support them.
”But if anyone attempts to do otherwise, the people will resist that. There is no doubt about it,” he said.
