Former Nigerian Senate President, David Mark believes the appeal court cancellation of his election was only a temporary setback.
In a reaction he said if the elections were to be conducted “100 times”, he would win.
The APC candidate, Daniel Onjeh had challenged Mark’s victory in the 28 March election, alleging gross irregularites. Onjeh lost his case at the Election Tribunal but marched onto the Appeal court in Makurdi where his prayer was answered. The court ordered fresh election within 90 days.
In a statement issued on his behalf by Paul Mumeh, his spokesman, Mark called for calm over the appeal court ruling.
“I won the election clean and clear. If we go back to the polls 100 times, I will still win convincingly.
“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.”
