Appearing intolerant of the activities of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Benue State, the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, led by Governor Samuel Ortom yesterday denied former Senate President, David Mark the use of Oju Stadium when he went to the area to thank the people for voting for him during the recent rerun election.
After waiting for a long time in Oju town to get the nod of the local government chairman who was approached for the release of the venue ahead of the event, Senator Mark, his entourage and the large people of Oju who turned out to receive him eventually converged at Julia Resort, owned by Andy Olema, a member of the PDP.
Nigerian Pilot also gathered that the ruling government is also on the verge of suspending traditional rulers who received Senator Mark during his tour, particularly that of Ohimini Local Government Area, Chief John Ochai, who conferred on him the title of Ogomola K’Ohimini, meaning the defender of the people.
Mark, while addressing the people, decried what he described as
‘undemocratic’ the action of the APC government for denying him the venue, stressing, “This is not democracy, we’ll try it in court.”
He thanked the people for their dogged support which culminated in large votes for him in spite of intimidation from the government of the day which never gave them a chance.
The state chairman of PDP, Dr Agbo Emmanuel, also thanked the people for standing in defence of Senator Mark against the wish of the government.
Also speaking, Chief Daniel Ulegede noted that the nullification and subsequent re-election of Mark has added more feathers to his political prowess as it has made him to be the only Nigerian to have been elected and inaugurated six times into the National Assembly.
Earlier in Utonkon, Ado local government where he visited the previous day, Sen Mark promised to work and die for Idoma people.
Mark who announced the donation of a transformer for the people of Igumale Ward 1 said he was working hard to amicably resolve the problem of Agatu people who are presently displaced so that they can return home.
He said his victory in the rerun has demystified those who had given the impression that they are the ones that determine victory during elections.
