Appeal court quashes David Mark's election, orders rerun

An Appeal Court sitting in Makurdi, Benue State at the weekend quashed the election of the former Senate President, Senator David Mark and orders rerun, reports ITRealms.

Also, the court ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to carry out a fresh election of the Benue South Senatorial election. 

ITRealms recalls that Comrade Daniel Onjeh, of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had dragged David Mark to the Appeal Court against Tribunal Judgement which upheld Senator Mark’s election.
An excited Onjeh declared “Hurray! Thank God I have been vindicated! “

In his response, David Mark through his aide, Paul Mumeh insist he won the March 28 Senatorial election in Benue south senatorial district and will repeat the same feat if the elections were to be conducted ‘100 times.’ 

The appeal court equally ordered INEC to conduct a rerun election within 90 days. 

For Mark, his people love him and would stand by him again in the fresh election, stressing “I won the election clean and clear. If we go back to the polls 100 times, I will still win convincingly.” 

Additionally, part of the statement read “Whatever the situation may be, one thing I know is that my people are solidly behind me. They also appreciate the fact that I have done more than enough to lift up Idoma nation to a position of eminence in the contemporary political history of Nigeria.”
