President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the former Senate President, and Senator representing Zone C Constituency of Benue State, Senator David Alechenu Mark for instituting maturity and stability in the Senate.
“The President commends the maturity, stability and focused legislation that he (David Mark) instituted in the upper chamber during the eight years he served as Senate President, and the dutifulness that culminated in the passing of many bills.”
In a message today, Saturday by his spokesman, Malam Garba Shehu, to the Senator as he marks his 70th birthday, President Buhari believed that the wealth of experience which Senator Mark had gathered over the years will be most useful for the development of the country, especially in sustaining peace across the country.
He rejoiced with the family, friends and political associates of Senator Mark who he described as “the former military officer, who served the country variously as a governor, minister and Senate President.”
He prayed to God to grant the former Senate President longer life, good health and wisdom to continue serving his people and the country.
