Mark contested the election under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and was declared winner by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

Onjeh claimed there were irregularities in the voting on the day of election. He further claimed that there was an over voting too.

But the Tribunal dismissed his petition on the grounds of lack of proof of evidence to back up his claims.
