Emerging report has it that the INEC card readers have detected over 18,424 ghost voters in the just concluded Benue Zone C Senatorial Election.
It was learnt that the national and state Assembly tribunal in Benue State had ordered the senatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the Benue South senatorial zone, Comrade Daniel Onjeh and his party to go through the electoral materials of last senatorial election in the area.
Onjeh, who vied for the senate seat of the Benue South senatorial district against the senate President, David Mark of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), was defeated.

“Aside a host of other irregularities, and non compliance with the Electoral Act, on the surface, 18,424 Ghost Voters have been detected . The stolen mandate must be restored”
