A statement signed by Chief Olisa Metuh, PDP National Publicity Secretary and made available to newsmen on Monday in Abuja, described Mark as `an asset to the nation.’
He said that the party and the people of Benue-South Senatorial zone were solidly behind Mark in the forthcoming exercise. Mark will be running against Daniel Onjeh, a former student union activist. Onjeh is a member of the All Progressives Congress and his appeal against the judgement of the Election Tribunal made the Federal Appeal Court annul David Mark’s election.
He said that the people of the zone who are ‘’ardent members and supporters of the party since 1999,’’ would remain steadfast in giving Mark another resounding victory at the re-run election.
Metuh also lauded the `significant contributions’ of Sen. Mark in growing and stabilising the nation’s democracy through his ‘’mature, responsible and patriotic leadership of the Senate.’’
“He is a value that is still highly needed in the polity,’’ he said.
He urged PDP members in Benue-South to resist any attempt to intimidate them in their determination to ensure effective and result-oriented representation in the Senate as typified in Sen. Mark.
