Rt. Hon Mrs Dorothy Mato, the current member of the House of Representatives for Vandeikya/Konshisha Federal Constituency of Benue State yesterday emerged the APC flag-bearer for her constituency in 2019 election.

The primary election for the constituency was conducted in Vandeikya Local Government Council of Benue State at the LGA headquarters, Vandeikya. 

There were three aspirants for the position: Rt. Hon Mrs Dorothy Mato, Mr. Bem Garba and Mr Frank Aseer Ankar. Before the primary election began, Mr Ankar stepped down in honour of Rep Mato while Garba and Mato went on into the race. 

When delegates arrived and voting began, it was very clear that Hon Mato was going to take the day because of the body language of most of the delegates that voted. 

Along the process of voting, when Mr Bem Garba realized that he had no significant support to push through to victory, he angrily left the premise of the primary election with most of his group while the election was conducted peacefully.

There were 541accredited voters.  Out of this number, there were 538 valid votes and 3 invalid votes. Garba got 6 votes while Hon Mato got 532 votes to emerge as APC flag-bearer for the position. 

Hon Mato was overwhelmed by the unswerving support given to her by the delegates and celebrated her victory with all her supporters with songs of praise. 

INEC observed the process as it went peacefully and commended all those who participated in the process from all quarters to make it a success.
