A Court of Appeal sitting in Benue State today has nullified the election of former senate president, David Mark.

Mark’s poll victory was challenged by The All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for Benue South, Mr Donald Onjeh. Onjeh’s lawyer, Adetunji Oso, pointed out that the court made a grave error by declaring Senator Mark winner of the poll while the collation of results for the Benue South senatorial district’s election on March 28 was still ongoing in seven of the nine local government areas.

The court has also ordered a re-run of the poll within 90 days.
