Benue South Senatorial District will reject Senate President David Mark in the 2015 general elections, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Chief Madaki Ameh, has declared.
Madaki, one of the aspirants aiming to scuttle Mark’s return to the senate for a record fourth time, alleged that the Senate President had wasted 16 years in the Upper Chamber and should not be allowed to return.
The APC chieftain, who made this known while addressing Benue South indigenes residing in Port Harcourt, Rivers State yesterday, said it was time to work together for the development of the area.
He said he was in Port Harcourt to inform indigenes of the district of his interest to contest for the senatorial seat under the platform of APC.
He also advised the people not to be intimidated but use the power of their votes to chase away those who do not wish them well.
Madaki stated: “My aspiration is premised on the failure of Senator David Mark to deliver anything meaningful to the Idoma people for 16 years he had occupied that position.
“He has been deceiving us, leading to deep frustrations and hopelessness on the part of the people.
“It has become obvious that his often-touted promises have become recycled promises, which will never come to fruition.
“And he can no longer use money to manipulate the people to his advantage. He is going nowhere in 2015 not even any of his anointed candidates”.
Madaki also stressed that his party, the APC, has come to liberate the people of Benue South from the wasted years, adding that the power to effect a change reside with the people.
