OrderPaperToday– Former President of the Senate, David Mark has said he would win the Benue South Senatorial seat 100 times over because his constituents believe in him and would not hesitate to continue to vote for him.
Mark was reacting to the Tribunal verdict which nullified his election today. The Makurdi division of the Appeal Court has ordered a re-run of the poll within 90 days.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, Donald Onjeh had challenged the decision of the National and State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal, which upheld the victory of Senator Mark of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
But in a statement by his Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh, Sen. Mark told his people not to be deterred by the verdict but be strengthened ahead of the re-run. He believed that he won the election convincingly and has no doubt that his constituents would turn out en masses to vote for him again.
“Whatever 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 the 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.”
