We are not behind the removal of David Mark - Ortom

The Benue state government has debunked insinuations that it interfered in the judgement of the Appeal Court that nullified the election of senator David Mark, the immediate past senate president today, November 28.
The petitioner, Mr Daniel Onjeh had approached the Appeal court that the March 28 Benue south senatorial district election was marred by irregularities when the lower court ruled in David Mark’s favour.
The special adviser to the Benue state Governor on media, Mr Terver Akase however said the government was not responsible for the current woes of the former senate president.
“If I am to say one or two things for my governor, what he would say in a circumstance like this is that he upholds the sanctity of the judiciary. He has trust in the judiciary and has nothing to do with the judgement. It is what the judiciary feels that is right that has been done and I think this is deepening our democracy.
“The governor is a man who believes in justice, fair play and fair hearing. So in what sense would you then say there was an interference by the governor? I mean there is none. The governor has nothing to do in this case. It is a national assembly matter and the aggrieved petitioner went to court. The governor has nothing to do with this case and that is it.
“The fact is that Comrade Daniel Onjeh is a party member of the governor. If he wins at the court, the governor, the party will be happy…the entire party in the state will be happy. But to say that the governor had a hand in the judgement is unfortunate,” Mr Terver said.
