Former Senate President and winner of the February 20 Benue South Senatorial District re-run election, David Mark, has appealed to his main challenger, Daniel Onjeh of the All Progressives Congress, APC, to join him in moving Idomaland forward.
The Peoples Democratic Party chieftain disclosed this during his maiden press conference after the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC declared him as the winner. “I want to thank all sons and daughters of Idomaland because this victory is for us, not for David Mark.
I also want to urged those whose political interest might have clashed with mine to join hands with me in moving Idomaland forward,” he said. He declared that election is over and all efforts must be geared towards the betterment of the people. “You (media) heard the result before me because I was sleeping when it was declared. I want to thank the support of the people and promised that I will not disappoint them. The youth stood by me”. “
The election is over and I am ready to serve Idomaland again,” he added. Dismissing calls by the APC that the election should be declared inconclusive, Senator Mark said his major concern is on how to ensure that Idomaland is better than it was in the past, adding that strength is in unity. ls-to-onjeh-others/
