“Anyone Who Collects Gifts From David Mark Without Voting Him Will Not Escape Punishment Of Idoma gods”
A curse has been placed by a Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftain, Sunday Ogebe on anyone who collects anything from former Senate President, David Mark, yet refuse to vote for him in the forthcoming rerun election in Benue South senatorial district.
The PDP chieftain, who spoke to newsmen in Kaduna on Tuesday, lamented that former Senator Mark, whose election was nullified last month by the Appeal Court, had become a punching bag for those looking for who to blame for the under-development of Idoma land.
Ogebe said these set of people forget that Mark was not the state governor even as he carpeted those rejoicing over the invalidation of the former Senate president’s election.
“Anyone one who says our able leader, David Mark should be voted out is an enemy of Idoma community.
“A leader like Mark is not common. It is sad that we are chasing away a man who spent 16 years of his life representing the good people of our land at the senate”, he stressed.
Ogebe recalled that, “after serving the nation in the military, the love Mark has for his fatherland made him to join politics”.
“It is sad. I heard some people condemning him for distributing rice and other food items to his constituents. This is a man that is out of job at the moment. Anyone who collects his gift and refuses to vote him will not escape the punishment of alekwu (gods) of our land”, he added.
On who to blame over the failure of the creation of Apa State (to be carved out of Benue State), Ogebe said, “is Mark the only legislator? Can only him create state? We should stop all these unnecessary blames. Wait if any state is created and Apa State is not on the list. I can assure you that this man is doing underground works but people won’t see it”.
