MARK VS ONJEH: INEC urges Tribunal to dismiss Onjeh’s suit against David Mark

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has urged the National Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal sitting in Makurdi, to dismiss the petition filed by the defeated All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate at the last Benue South senatorial rerun election, Mr. Daniel Onjeh, on the ground that it was time and status barred.
Onjeh is challenging the victory of Senator David Mark of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in the February 20th. rerun poll citing electoral malpractices.
At Thursday’s sitting of the Tribunal, the INEC through its counsel, Mr. Johnson Usman maintained that the petition failed to comply with provisions of Paragraph 4(1) of the First Schedule of the Electoral Act, 2010 as amended.
