Senator David Mark has urged All Progressive Congress (APC) Chairman, Chief John Oyegun to warn the party’s Benue South senatorial candidate, Daniel Onjeh to stop insulting him.

The call was made via a statement released on Thursday, February 11, 2016, by the Director of Media and Publicity of Mark’s campaign organization, Dr Adakole Elijah.

It reads:

“The continued inflammatory statements, innuendo, abuse and poor conduct of Onjeh and his campaign team ahead of the rerun election is clearly unbecoming of someone aspiring to lead.”

“We believe very strongly that this is another APC plot to cover its antics. We cannot fall for it. We cannot be part of this crude mentality. We demand an immediate retraction and unreserved apology forthwith”.

“We make bold to state unequivocally that we have maintained the highest level of decorum and restraint in spite of the unwarranted provocation since the campaign started.”

“It is, therefore, instructive to remind Chief Oyegun that as a man who comes from the great Benin Kingdom, the custodian of African rich cultural heritage, where respect for elders is a grand norm, he cannot be endorsing Onjeh’s ceaseless insult on our Principal.”

“The APC does not need to attack our principal. This is election. All they need do is to tell the people what they have done or want to do. Senator Mark cannot be the APC agenda. We have an array of what we have done for the people. We cannot join issues with them.”

“Our people have now seen the difference between what our principal stands for and what the APC wants to do in Benue South.”

“We do not need a resort to self-help to win elections. Our people are now convinced that external forces cannot determine their destiny. They know that Senator Mark represents Idoma dreams. They have decided once again to vote for Senator Mark.”

“We also need to remind Security operatives to be on the alert as the APC in Benue state is perfecting plan to unleash mayhem on Benue south during and after the elections. Credible information reaching us indicates that the APC is said to be sewing camouflage army and police uniforms for thugs during the election.”

“But what they must know by now is that our people have resolved to take their destiny in their hands. And no amount of intimidation or external forces can change their resolve to vote for Senator Mark.”

Onjeh and Mark are expected to go head to head for the February 20 rerun elections in Benue South after the latter’s March 28, 2015, election victory was nullified by the Court of Appeal.
