The immediate past President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, has stated that the growing interest of his people and endorsement by various stakeholders for him ahead of the February 20, 2016 rerun election for Benue South senatorial district has encouraged and made him psychologically prepared.
Mark said he is overwhelmed by the uncommon support and solidarity by his constituents and therefore emboldened to face the election.
He promised to serve and defend the interest of his constituents at all times no matter the odds and circumstance.
According to him, “I am psychologically and emotionally prepared for the rerun election on account of the growing support from my constituents who are urging me on. I enjoy the support and confidence of my people. God helping us I will not let them down, I will serve creditably.”
Senator Mark’s confidence is anchored on God, the overwhelming support and solidarity from his Benue South constituents who see him as a rallying point and a symbol of their hopes and aspirations.
For them, the forthcoming rerun election is a battle for the interest and survival of the Idoma people which Senator Mark represents.
Already, PDP Senate caucus led by the Deputy President of the Senate, Ike Ekweremadu, Benue State House of Representatives caucus, Benue State zone C House of Assembly caucus, the League of Idoma Professors, the Idoma Dreams, the Idoma Young Professionals, the Idoma Prosperity Group, as well as women groups, have separately thrown their weights behind Senator Mark for the rerun election.
The various groups anchored their support for Senator Mark on the basis of achievements for his Benue South constituency and his antecedents of effective and quality representation in the National Assembly.
