Ahead of the February 20, 2016 Benue South rerun election, former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has said that no election is worth injury or loss of life, stressing that the choice of representation resides with the people and ultimately God.
Mark, who stated this when he received members of Idoma Dreams and Idoma Young Professionals campaigning for his rerun election, said he is deeply touched by the uncommon show of brotherhood and solidarity.
While commending them, he assured that that he is irrevocably committed to the development of Benue South and beyond and will do everything legitimate to improve their lots.
He said; “I am deeply touched by this uncommon solidarity. Let me also remind you that in going about the campaign for me, please always be law abiding. I need you to be peaceful during the pre-election, Election Day and post-election.
“I want to thank you for believing in my leadership and understanding that credible representation at the Senate is of utmost importance. By the grace of God, we shall triumph at the rerun election. I will defend the interest of our people at all times.”
Earlier, leader of the Idoma dreams, Mr. Donald Ogah said the campaign for Mark’s rerun has been impressive, adding that the people have seen the need to uphold a credible and quality representation in addition to the good works that he represents.
Ogah maintained that the battle to return Mark to the Senate is not negotiable “because he represents Idoma Dreams. This battle is not for you (Mark) but for the survival of Idoma nation. We would not sit and watch outsiders determine our future and destiny. We have a choice in Senator Mark.”
The groups volunteered to campaign for Mark’s rerun election in the nine local government areas of Benue South Senatorial district
