Rmtimesng—A pan Idoma social political group, Benue Advocates has faulted the PDP primary conducted for the Senatorial and House of representatives contestants describing it as a sham and rape on democracy

The group in a press statement issued in Otukpo and signed by its National chairman, Comrade Clement Oche and made available to newsmen lamented the manipulation and distortions that characterised the primary.

According to the Organisation, the primary which could not hold in the Senatorial district and was moved to makurdi the state capital was hijacked by men loyal to the former Senate President, David Mark.

The group faulted a situation where the delegate list was changed by some money bagged Abuja politicians who have little or no political relevance back home. A situation in which the authentic voters list was used for the PDP governorship Primary and a fabricated list was used for the Senatorial and House of representatives election , was totally condemned by the group.

In the statement of the Organisation, ” Why should the PDP conduct an election for delegate and later allow one or two persons discard the list of the authentic delegate and fabricate theirs. Sadly the list fake list is the one used to elect those they want to force into the national parliament to represent their selfish interest.”

The group pointed out that, “The fight seems to centred around the David Mark family and dynasty. His family members and disciples who are not popular in Idoma land are using him against other family members and popular political stakeholders they considered very principled that cannot be manipulated. ”

The statement went further to states that, ” it is sad that at a time when the All Progressives congress and other parties are building their house, the former Two-time senate president is allowing his cousins, friends and political Loyalists to capture and control the affairs”

The group vowed to do all with its powers to mobilised the Idoma nation to resist attempts to handover Benue South to those who are self seeking and donot have the interest of the region at heart.
