2019 Election: PDP To Return David Mark To Senate For 6th Term

The Senator representing Benue south senatorial district, David Mark, has reportedly dumped his presidential ambition to return the National Assembly for the 6th time since 1999.

It was gathered that the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) 60/40 arrangement with fresh decampees from the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) will stand, this is baring any unforeseen circumstance.

The 60/40 formula is reportedly set up for incumbents who have the first right of refusal to re-contest in 2019 in order to maintain peace and stability in the party.

According to activist and political analyst, Josephine Akioyame, “PDP’s 60/40 is live and well. Governor Ortom will be its flagbearer for 2019. The agreement was set up so that incumbents have the right of first refusal. Forget about the noise. The fight was never about Ortom but about Gemade and other aspirants who piggybacked on Ortom to the PDP.

Thus, two ears hear the Rep for Otukpo/ Ohimini , Ezekiel Adaji wants back in. So is the Rep for Ado/Ogbadibo/Okpokwu, Hassan Anthony Saleh on the basis of incumbents’ right of first refusal.

However, I doubt very much, the Ado/Ogbadibo/Okpokwu would work. That constituency has a time honoured code of rotational arrangement existing for peace, order and good government. It does this as to make every area feel included considering that it is a mix mash of dialectical dissonance that operates as a time bomb.

A result of this arrangement is that it is Ado’s turn, particularly of Agila extraction based on Ado internal zoning. Hon David O Idoko of Okpokwu spent 8 years. Hon Anthony Hassan Saleh of Ogbadibo is spending 8 years after which it rotates to Ado.

One ear hear that the Ogidigan of Idoma land the distinguished Senator David Mark is warming up to go back to the Senate on the basis of this arrangement.
