The #Benue #State National Assembly #Election Petition #Tribunal sitting in Makurdi on Thursday fixed August 18, 2015 for former Senate #President, David #Mark to appear before the tribunal and testify in person.
Confirming this story, following our earlier reports this week, Mark’s Counsel, Mr Kenneth Ikonne, told the tribunal on Thursday that his client would be appearing in person to testify during the next adjourned date to enable him close his case.
The declaration of Senator Mark as winner of the Benue South Senatorial District election, which returned him to the upper legislative house for a fifth term in office, is being challenged by Daniel #Onjeh of the All Progressives Congress.
Onjeh had argued that the elections were marred by electoral malpractices and substantial breaches of the Electoral Act 2011 as amended.
He also averred that INEC officials were compromised and voters were financially induced by the #PDP agents at the various polling units in the district.
But, an aide to the former senate president denied such allegations.
