Mark assured that the exercise will be smooth and transparent, although he told committee members to be prepared for challenges to ensure a credible exercise, saying “you have to be absolutely transparent.

A statement released Friday by his media adviser, Paul Mumeh, quoted Senator Mark as saying, “If you have an interest or bias in any of the midshipmen, you may excuse yourself from this assignment.”

He maintained that the stage was set for a smooth program as all logistics, materials and security were taken care of.

He added, “we are ready for the exercise, practically all of our delegates have arrived in Abuja”.
