Benue South rerun: Accord, PDP seal deal on David Mark

As the senatorial rerun election for Benue South draws closer, the immediate past Senate President, Dr. David Mark's ambition received yet another giant boost as the entire members of the Accord party and some members of the main opposition in Zone C, APC have come to terms with the ruling PDP for the sole reason of returning him at the poll. 

The decision was reached today in Otukpo at the residence of Alhaji Usman Abubakar (a.k.a. Young Alhaji), former deputy Governorship candidate for Benue ACN in 2011.
Representatives of various organs of the political parties  from the 9 LGAs of Benue South unanimously agreed to support Senator David Mark in the Saturday's senatorial rerun. 

According to them, their resolve to work for the former Senate President was premised on his antecedents and the need to defend the honour and dignity of the Idoma nation from the "grand conspiracies " of the enemies of Idoma; this they said was more important than political participation.
Addressing the mammoth crowd, Alhaji Usman said he was overwhelmed by the turn out and charged the people to translate it into votes for Senator Mark on Saturday.
Young Alhaji who is believed by many as 'traditional political rival' of Senator Mark also explained why he is now the "Chief Cornerstone" of Mark's reelection, against Dan Onjeh who hails from the same village with him.

"I am not working for David Mark but the people of zone C. I know what they want and I am working for what they want now.
"I am happy that it's only the voters in Zone C that can decide when it is time up for David Mark in the Senate; not Tiv leaders, not the APC leadership in Abuja and Makurdi. And certainly, this is not the time, he added.”

Speakers after Speakers, the forum resolved that with signals so far recieved from the Ortom led administration in Benue State and with the Tiv political hegemony being orchestrated by Senator George Akume, it would amount to sheer mischief and witchery for every reasonable Idoma or Igede descendant to support the continous marginalization by the Tiv elites. 

Present at the meeting were former Chairman of Otukpo LGC, Dr. Innocent Onuh, Founder of the African Basketball Champions, Mark Mentors, former Commissioner for Science and Technology,  Hon. Godwin Adah, former Aide to Senator Mark, Hon. Francis Omnoke, Hon. Sunday Onehi and over 4000 other participants
