APC can­di­date files ap­peal against Mark

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Hope Abah, Makurdi

Can­di­date of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) for the Benue South sen­a­to­rial elec­tion in March 2015, Daniel On­jeh, on Tues­day filed an ap­peal against former Sen­ate Pres­i­dent, David Mark, whose vic­tory at the polls was up­held by a tri­bunal.

The Jus­tice Mo­sumola Dipeolu-led panel on Na­tional/State Houses of As­sem­bly Elec­tion Pe­ti­tion Tri­bunal, sit­ting in Makurdi, had dis­missed On­jeh’s pe­ti­tion against Mark on all grounds.

On­jeh had ear­lier ap­proached the court to nul­lify the elec­tion in over 700 polling units and or­der for a fresh one.

How­ever, the pe­ti­tioner, who cried foul over the judg­ment, has filed no­tice of ap­peal on 12 grounds to chal­lenge the ver­dict of the tri­bunal which ac­cord­ing to him did not prop­erly ad­dress the is­sues raised in his pe­ti­tion.
