Youths from the Benue South Senatorial District have stated that the rented crowd that welcomed Senator David Mark would not save him during the rerun next year.
The youth group on the platform of Idoma Youth Parliament said the much publicized grand reception of David Mark which witnessed a great crowd was a fraud in itself as most of the people were not natives of the senatorial district but a hired crowd from neighboring areas and mostly from Tiv communities.
Comrade Mary Oloja in a statement for the group, issued on Friday said it was embarrassing that Senator Mark had decided to abandon his helicopter for the first time because he needed the people to vote him.
“Is it not morally wrong for David Mark to abandon his helicopter and for the first time ply the same roads he refused to repair just because he wants to show humility and gain our votes? The Idoma Youths are wiser today, we will not allow anyone bamboozle us with these theatrics”
She said the people of Benue South Senatorial District had outgrown his promises of emancipation and creation of Apa state as well as federal presence, as these had been discovered to be tricks used to obtain power and abandon them till another four years.
