Former President of the Senate, David Mark has called on his constituents to remain calm and be law abiding, following the Benue State Election Appeal Tribunal which ordered a re-run of Benue South Senatorial election, yesterday.
Reacting to the Tribunal verdict, Mark told his followers not to be deterred by the verdict, but be strengthened ahead of the re-run. According to him, he won the election convincingly. “I have no doubt that my constituents would turn out en mass to vote for me again.
“What ever the situation may be, one thing I know is that my people are solidly behind me. They also appreciate the fact that I have done more than enough to lift up Idoma nation to a position of eminence in contemporary political history of Nigeria,” Senator Mark stated.
He insisted: “I won the election clean and clear. If we go back to the polls 100 times, I will still win convincingly.” The Appeal Tribunal , yesterday, ordered a fresh election in Benue south Senatorial district seat won by Senator Mark of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against Daniel Onjeh of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
