Moro who is the incumbent Senator representing the district in the National Assembly, stated this shortly after he was declared winner of the election in Otukpo amid celebration by his supporters. 

He defeated three other aspirants to clinch the ticket after polling a total of 179 votes while his closest rival, Hassan Saleh garnered 72 votes. The two other aspirants, Joseph Ojobo and Bright Ogaji polled 53 and 3 votes respectively.

According to the lawmaker, his victory was not about him but the people of Benue South District.
