Media Attacks On Mark Most Uncharitable, Moro Tells Benue Deputy Gov

Former minister of interior, Comrade Abba Moro, has described as unfortunate, the uncharitable attacks on the immediate past president of the Senate, Senator David Mark, by the Deputy Governor of Benue State, Engineer Benson Abounu in the media.

In a statement he issued yesterday in Abuja, Moro faulted Abounu’s attack on Mark, saying that it is regretabble that the deputy governor could cast aspersion on Mark in spite of his achievements.

Moro said, “It’s unfortunate that Abounu has so soon forgotten to let the public know that the ‘enormous power’ David Mark ‘wielded’ facilitated his appointments as commissioner for water resources and environment and the chairman of the board of directors of the Nigerian Television Authority.

“Can Abounu point to any viable and sustainable project he used his occupation of these high grade positions to attract to Idoma land? Can Abounu explain to his Idoma people why the traditional Idoma slot of the secretary to the government of Benue State was taken away from them for the first time in the history of democratic Governance in Benue State under his watch as deputy Governor.”
