We are Solidly Behind David Mark For Another Victory – PDP

Tope Oshin

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the party and the people of Benue South are solidly behind the former Senate President, Senator David Mark to repeat his electoral victory in the rerun election ordered by the Court of Appeal.

The party, which described Mark as an asset to the nation said it is assured that the people of Benue South Senatorial zone, as ardent members and supporters of the PDP since 1999 would remain steadfast in giving him another resounding victory at the rerun election.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh in a statement on Monday said the confidence of the party of retaining the Senatorial seat is even stronger now that the deceit of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has become obvious to all Nigerians.

The PDP said the inexplicable ruling of the Appeal Court, even when all evidence pointed to Mark’s victory as upheld by the lower tribunal, is yet another evidence of APC’s dangerous interference in the judiciary, which negative consequences the PDP has continued to alert the nation.

The party also noted the significant contributions of Senator Mark in growing and stabilizing the nation’s democracy through his mature, responsible and patriotic leadership of the Senate, a value that is still highly needed in the polity.

The PDP therefore urged its members in Benue South to resist any attempt to intimidate them, especially in their determination to ensure effective and result-oriented representation in the Senate as typified in Senator Mark.
