Adakole Elijah, one of the pillars of the David Mark's Door2Door Campaign Organisation, has stated that his principal has no political rival in Idomaland, nay, Benue State.

Elijah, a veteran journalist said as electorates in Benue South prepare to hit the polls in February 13 for the rerun, the chances of Mark are clear, considering his numerous achievements, which include many chieftancy tittles.

Speaking with The New Telegraph, Elijah said Mark has done a lot for his people, especially the Idoma and should be retuned to the senate.

He said," Senator Mark’s popularity in Benue South Senatorial District is unequalled. He is a household name. He is loved by majority of the people. Even those that despise him secretly admire his qualities, his personality and his character. Most people in the senatorial district look at him as the man capable of extricating them from clutches of oppression, opprobrium, indignation and inhuman treatment that we have been subjected to in Benue State.

For your information, before Senator Mark’s political voyage, the of Benue South were excised from Benue State on the August 25, 1992 via a resolution by the Benue State House of Assembly dominated by the Tiv.

And from that date, the people of Benue South were practically excluded from the scheme of things in the state. We became a stateless community. We were like the Palestinian, stateless people.

We were treated as a lower caste. We cannot be allowed to administer the state as a governor, we are not allowed to occupy the position of Speaker, Benue State House of Assembly and it is a taboo for us to be elevated to the position of the Chief Judge of the state, our youth were heavily discriminated upon in terms of employment, appointments, placements, etc. infrastructural development such as companies, roads, potable drinking water, hospitals, etc. were non-existent in Benue South.

The situation was politically pathetic. These were the situation on ground before Senator Mark came home to the warm embrace of his people in 1998. He was urged to join partisan politics and on November 4, 1998, as he teamed up with the Peoples Democratic Party. Since then he had performed greatly in stemming the tide.

On his numerous strides, Elijah said, "Some of these titles are as follows: Ogakwu Ogamenyi k’Agatu, Onmojiji k’Apa, Ogbenjuwa k’Okpokwu, Onmeje k’Ogbadigbo, Omaga k’Igede, Otache k’Ito, Ejegbogwu k’Otukpo, Ochojila k’Ado, Ogblo nei’Kuunegidi k’Agila, Ogbenjuwa k’Akpa."
