Former President of the Senate Senator David Mark has called on his constituents to remain calm and be law abiding over the Benue State Election Appeal Tribunal which ordered a re-run of the Benue South Senatorial election result.
Senator Mark in a reaction to the Tribunal verdict 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 mass 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 the 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.”
The Appeal Tribunal ordered a fresh election for the Benue south Senatorial district poll which INEC had declared that Senator Mark of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) won against Daniel Onjeh of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
