Door2Door Organization, the official campaign team of Senate President, David Mark has fired back at Dan Onjeh, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress in the Benue South Senatorial District election, describing him as a disrespectful child.
Onjeh, a former students’ leader had in a statement described Mark’s recent visit to the president-elect as a ‘wild goose chase.’
According to Onjeh, Mark’s visit to Gen. Buhari would not save his already dying political career.
Reacting to Onjeh’s assertion, the national coordinator of Door2Door, James Oche in a statement stated that Onjeh was over stepping his boundary and should be called to order.
Oche said Onje’s action shows that he mother was not properly married to his father.
The statement reads.
“I do not want to dignify a certain Daniel Onjeh with a response. I believe that in our culture and indeed African, tradition is held in high esteem and respect for elders is an integral part, when a young man consistently misbehaves there is a tendency to ask if his mother was properly married to his father, Daniel Onjeh arguably fit into this category.
For the avoidance of doubt His Excellency Sen. David Mark GCON visited President-Elect Gen Mohammed Buhari on Thursday 23rd April 2015 at about 2p.m on the invitation of the latter as a senior citizen of Nigeria.
Of course there was exchange of barters and issues of National concern where discussed by the two leaders.
For a certain Onjeh to resort to insult on the Senate President for honouring an invitation extended to him by our respected President -Elect is throwing caution to the winds. One wonders when it has become an offence to Honour an invitation.
This clearly marks Onjeh out as a child with a very faulty upbringing. To put the records straight, Sen. Mark does not need to campaign for votes in Benue south senatorial Zone. His land mark achievements are enough evidence to sell him any day.
But as a humble leader, he still went to all the nooks and crannies to canvass for votes; of course, the result was overwhelming as he won the election clean and clear.
Everybody on the streets of Benue south can attest to the quality representation and dividends of democracy including but not limited to 14,685 students of tertiary institutions who were placed on scholarships.
Ordinarily, the lot of them would not have had access to education, but did based on the scholarship of Sen. Mark through the David Mark scholarship foundation.
This is beside other categories of physically challenged orphan and gifted girl child on full scholarship. Onjeh should not forget that in Idoma Land respect for elders is sacrosanct.
That whatever his ambition or that of his pay masters may be no logic can diminish the solid facts of Sen. Mark’s achievements.
Above all Sen. Mark adorns a garment made by God and washed by Angel which a thousand Onjeh’s cannot stain or drag into mud.
Onjeh, a former president of the National Association of Nigerian Students, NAN, and West African Students Union, WASU, was yet to react to the statement”.
