PDP upbeat at Mark's succcess in Benue

01 December 2015, 09:48Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) has expressed confidence the people of Benue South are behind the former Senate President,  David Mark, to repeat his electoral victory in the rerun election ordered by the Court of Appeal.

The party described Mark as an asset to the nation and assured that the people of Benue South Senatorial zone, as ardent members and supporters of the PDP since 1999 would remain steadfast in giving him another resounding victory at the rerun election.

The party through a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh said the confidence of the party of retaining the senatorial seat was even stronger now that the alleged deceit of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had become obvious to all Nigerians.

“The inexplicable ruling of the Appeal Court, even when all evidence pointed to Mark’s victory as upheld by the lower tribunal, is yet another evidence of APC's dangerous interference in the judiciary, which negative consequences the PDP has continued to alert the nation,” Metuh said.

He added that the party noted the significant contributions of Mark in growing and stabilising the nation's democracy through his mature, responsible and patriotic leadership of the Senate, a value that was still highly needed in the polity.

The party urged its members in Benue South to resist any attempt to intimidate them, especially in their determination to ensure effective and result-oriented representation in the Senate as typified in Mark.
