Ahead of the 2019 general elections, a youth group in Benue State has kicked off campaign for David Mark’s presidential presidency in Makurid, Benue State.
This is coming barely two weeks after a group under the auspices of Middle Belt Volunteers presented the ex-senate president for president.
Members of the new youth group, who stormed the PDP secretariat in Makurdi on Tuesday, were seen displaying placards bearing various inscriptions in support of David Mark for president.
One of the youth leaders, Otse Samuel described Mark as the only one who was capable of bringing the desired change to Nigeria.
Speaking with our report on phone, Samuel called on Nigerian youths to support Mark for president in 2019.
“Mark remains our best choice. He is the only person who can bring the desired change. This change is a scam. We are calling on all Nigerians to support Mark for the task agead,” he said.
Meanwhile, James Oche, the coordinator of Mark campaign organisation, Door to Door, has said though the ongoing campaigns were not sponsored by Mark, it was a clear indication that Nigerians were yearning for a change.
He had said, “it is a testimony of his eight years of unblemished leadership he gave to Nigerians in the senate.
“He has no doubt shown that he is one of the Nigerians that can manage and provide real leadership in a country that has numerous ethnic groups
“For now, he is more concerned with ensuring that PDP put their house together so as to play their role of opposition perfectly.”
