An Otukpo based group, Youth Ambassadors For David Alechenu Mark (YADAM) has expressed confidence that he will convincingly beat his opponent, Daniel Onjeh at the forthcoming Benue South Senatorial re-run, billed for February 13.
Chairman of the group, Gabriel Akogwu stated this while the group received a representative of Senator David Mark at Sabon Gari, Otukpo on Sunday.
Akogwu said that the track records of Senator Mark are there and speak volume of the astute legislature.
“David Mark is a pride of the Idoma nation. He is a blessing from God just like Moses was o the Israelites in Egypt,” he said.
He said that the Appeal Court was misled into questioning the election that Mark won last year, thereby annulling it.
“I believe the Appeal Court was misled. There is no way our Mark could have lost that election. We have accepted the result in good faith and are eagerly waiting for February 13 when we would put the enemies of the Idoma nation to shame,” he said.
In is remarks, Hon Joshua Okwori who represented Ahubi Mark at the meeting said that the Idoma nation must wake up and protect her interest at the February 13 election.
“We don’t need to talk too much about this issue. What we need is to take actions that would protect our fatherland. You are all aware, we have no other home and in recent times, we have had good representation at the Senate which has translated to several dividends to our people,” he added.
The thousands of youth present at the gathering unanimously agreed to put in their all at ensuring that Senator Mark returns to the Senate.
