Addressing a press conference at his residence at Otukpo after thanksgiving service, Senator David Mark of PDP who won the election ahead of Mr. Daniel Onjeh of the APC thanked his supporters, especially the Idoma youth who ensured he won the election. He called all Idoma leaders to come together and unite and build the Idoma nation assuring the Idoma people that he would not disappoint them.
Senator Mark asked all the leaders in Idoma land to unite once more and left bygone be bygone. He also thanked the social media team who worked tirelessly for him. Saying he doesn’t know much about the social media, he said he was forced to check the results of the election on social media as it was trending.
The All Progressive Congress (APC) have complained that they would accept the results. Mr. Daniel Onjeh has not called to congratulate Senator David Mark, a culture that started with former president Goodluck Jonathan when he accepted defeat during the past presidential election.
