Senate President, David Mark, reportedly broke down in tears on Monday as constituents from his Benue South Senatorial District purchased the 2015 Peoples Democratic Party nomination form for him to seek a re-election into the senate in 2015.
Mark has been in the Senate since 1999 and was elected as the President of the upper chambers on June 6, 2007.
In a statement by Mark’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr. Kolawole Ologbondiyan, in Abuja, it was explained that the nine local government council chairmen in Benue South Senatorial zone purchased the party nomination form in Makurdi.
The statement added that the people said they want Mark to return to the Senate unchallenged.
Ologbondiyan said, while accepting the nomination form at a crowded gathering in his Otukpo country home on Monday, Mark promised not to depart from the path of honour, justice and equity in the service to his country men and women.
He said, “This is the covenant with my people. This endorsement speaks volume of the immeasurable responsibility on my shoulder by my people. Please pray for me that God gives me the grace, wisdom and courage to continue to serve to the glory of God and benefit to humanity.”
