Former Senate #President, David #Mark is allegedly making moves to persuade his opponent in the last #Benue South Senatorial #election, Daniel #Onjeh of the All Progressives Congress, to withdraw his suit against him from court.
DAILY POST reports that Mark sent some of his associates to beg Dan to withdraw the petition in order for them to have brotherly chat.
Our reporter gathered that efforts to sit Onjeh down for a one-on-one chat with Mark by his associate had being futile, as the opponent seems to be adamant and was not ready to shift ground.
“Onjeh is not ready to meet with or entertain any offer from Mark and his loyalists. They have tried as much as possible to bring him for a one-on-one meeting with Mark but it did not yield any fruit,” a source said.
When contacted, Onjeh confirmed that some close associates of the former Senate President had being wooing him on his behalf to give up on the case but that he was not ready sell his mandate.
“Like I said earlier, I won the election convincingly and we are on our way to reclaim our stolen mandate. No retreat, no surrender,” Onjeh averred.
However, when an aide to the former Senate President was contacted for his opinion of the issue, he laughed off the claim saying: “Anybody who thinks Mark will beg Onjeh is dreaming. Beg him for what, that he did not win the election or what? Let them go and check the margin and stop dreaming. Senator Mark is too busy to stoop so low.”
Mark was expected to appear in person at the court on Monday to defend the election that brought him to power for fifth term, but while some of his witnesses failed to show up at the court, those who were present disappeared before the hearing.
