Former Senate President David Mark yesterday reacted to the Federal Court of Appeal’s ruling, which nullified his election as the senator representing Benue South District and ordered a re-run election within 90 days, pleading with his supporters to remain calm and refuse to be discouraged.
Mark in a statement issued by his Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh, said his constituents should be strengthened ahead of the re-run.
The appellate court had handed down the verdict in the appeal filed by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the election, Mr. Daniel Onjeh.
The Senate president in the statement, insisted that he won the election convincingly and was confident his constituents would turn out en masse to vote for him again.
He said, “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.
“I won the election clean and clear. If we go back to the polls 100 times, I will still win convincingly”.
