Tribunal nullifies David Mark's election

Vanguard Online "The Election petition tribunal sitting in Makurdi has nullified the election of Senate President David Mark. Delivering a three-hour judgment, Justice C.I. Oriri declared that the results for Agagu and Okpokwu local government areas of Benue State, which were earlier cancelled by the returning officer, had disenfranchised 139, 466 voters from electing their representative.
The tribunal said the results from seven other local government areas were not enough to produce a representative. It, therefore, ordered INEC to conduct fresh and credible elections in Agagu and Okpokwu local government areas within 60 days of the judgment."
