In a statement by Mark's Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh, the Senator said he believed that he won the election convincingly, and has no doubt that his constituents would turn out to vote for him 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 the contemporary political history of Nigeria," the statement read.

Continuing, Mark said, 'I won the election clean and clear. If we go back to the polls 100 times , I will still win convincingly.

This reaction is coming following the nullification of his election by the Makurdi division of the Court of Appeal and call for a re- run of the poll within 90 days.
