Mrs Blessing Onuh, the daughter of former Senate President, Senator David Mark has defected to All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA).
Blessing Onuh after losing the ticket for Otukpo/Ohimin federal constituency of Benue State, dumped her father’s party, PDP.
She has moved to APGA with 15, 000 members.
All the royal fathers in the constituency have endorsed Blessing Onuh for the plum job. One of the kings, Ochi Idoma, HRM, Elias Obekpa has described Onuh as a favourite candidate to represent the constituency.
“Blessing Onuh is my anointed daughter in whom I am pleased with”, King Elias stated.
“Her father’s weight in PDP couldn’t open the door for her, the reason she moved to APGA to get a ticket to run”, said a source.
Onuh while addressing her supporters after securing APGA’s ticket described PDP primaries in Benue State as a ‘mirage and Impunity’.
“We all know the circumstances that took us out of PDP.
“It is a story of pains and regret but today we thank God for a truly Progressive party like APGA has given us a platform to prove our worth”.
“I am so sure the good people of Otukpo will all go out to support me”, She added.
