Oyewale Oyelola – Senate President, David Mark and Governor Gabriel Suswam on Sunday won the Peoples Democratic Party Senatorial primary elections for 2015 general elections in Benue State.
Mark, who has been in senate since 1999 picked his fifth term senatorial ticket for Benue South after his opponent, Chief Mike Onoja withdrew from the race.
Similarly, Governor Gabriel Suswam emerged as winner for Benue North East after Incumbent senator and former National Chairman of the PDP, Chief Barnabas Gemade withdrew from the race during the week.
Our correspondent gathered that Chief Gemade might defect to APC to challenge Suswam in the senatorial zone during February 14, 2015 National Assembly elections.
However, Senate Leader, Victor Ndoma-Egba lost in the primary election to a member representing Obubra/Etung constituency in the House of Representatives, Mr. John Owan-Enoh.
Owan-Enoh polled 217 votes to defeat Ndoma-Egba and Ambassador Mark Egbe who had 37 and 20 votes respectively to pick Cross River Central PDP senatorial ticket.
