A Court of Appeal, sitting in Makurdi, Benue State, has nullified the election of former senate president, David Mark. The court faulted the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission to declare Mark, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, winner of the March 28 senatorial election in Benue south.
A rerun of the poll must be conducted within 90 days, the court ruled.
Mark’s purported victory was challenged by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Donald Onjeh. Yet another one.
