As former Senate President, David Mark prepares to reclaim his seat in the Senate at the Benue South senatorial district re-run election on Saturday, he has been warned to retire from politics after a 16-year sojourn in the Senate or stand a chance of being humiliated at the election.
Either there are no banners, they are disabled or none qualified for this location!
The warning came on Wednesday from a two-time House of Representatives aspirant, Danladi Ochekpe, who led a massive defection of members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
At the defection which took place at Ojantale/Ataganyi ward of Apa Local Government Area (LGA) of Benue State, Ochekpe said it was high time Mark took a backseat after 16 years of representing the senatorial district in the upper chamber of the National Assembly or risk being humiliated by his much-younger opponent.
Speaking of the reason for his defection, Ochekpe said: “I didn’t defect by chance. We have been deceived in the past 16 years not to go into opposition so I want to key into the change made possible by divine intervention. There had been no internal democracy in PDP. I’m leaving PDP to effect the much-needed change in Idomaland.”
Sen. Mark, who was Senate President between 2007 and 2015, is contesting against David Onjeh of the APC.
