A chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Sunday Ogebe has reportedly laid a curse on anyone who fails to vote for former Senate President, Senator David Mark after collecting rice shared by him.

Ogebe is said to have made the remark on Tuesday, December 22, 2015, while speaking to journalists in Kaduna, Daily Post reports.

“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,” Ogebe said.

“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.

Mark’s March 28 senatorial election victory was nullified by the Court of Appeal on Saturday, November 28.

The court further ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct fresh polls within 90 days.
