David Mark did not give Tuface any car gift- spokesperson


The car was donated to Tuface and his wife.

The Senate President, David Mark, has denied giving any car to the award winning musician, Innocent Idibia, popularly known as Tuface, and his wife, Annie, as a wedding gift.

In a statement by his spokesperson, Kola Ologbondiyan, the senate president said he did not give a Ferrari car or any other to the musician.

“The President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, did not give a N47m Ferrari car to Tuface Idibia contrary to wild stories being circulated on social sites,” Mr. Ologbondiyan stated on his facebook page.

Both Tuface and Mr. Mark are Idoma from Benue State.

Pictures of the Ferrari exhibited by the couple at the ceremony have been circulated on social media sites. Clearly attached to the car was a statement saying it was donated by the senate president.

Mr. Ologbondiyan, however, described the allegation as “wicked, ridiculous and irresponsible.”

The spokesperson also said Mr. Mark did not attend the couple’s wedding in Dubai contrary to reports.

“Senator Mark did not visit Dubai for Tuface wedding rather he attended the 128th Inter parliamentary Union (IPU) conference currently holding in Quito, Ecuador. He was also not represented at Mr. Idibia’s wedding,” he said.

“The President of the Senate, Senator Mark, did not make a car donation of any kind to Tuface before departing Nigeria for Ecuador neither did he purchase nor send any car to Dubai as a wedding gift for the musician or his wife.”

Mr. Ologbondiyan asked anyone who had any contrary information to provide it saying “who made the donation on behalf of the President of the Senate?”

“It is therefore a puerile lie for anybody to state that Senator Mark bought a Ferrari car worth N47m for Tuface,” he said.

    My bro. It is wickedness as u earlier said. I am a Benue man but from Tiv and if I have to donate a car to such a my follow brother of such status I will do. So I see no wrong in it. Says me

      See no evil hear no evil, that why we are where we are. If it were in countries were things are the way they should be, David Mark would never have smelt that senate seat talkless of its presidency.

      Not with his involvement in past military regimes and his utterances as a military communications minister.

      He wont be having ten percent of the properties he acquired under IBB, if he was earning a decent living as a military officer and worked 100yrs in 5 life times.

      But still you see no wrong and you are enjoying Nigeria the way it is?

        you are complete moron…it’s people like you that keep this kind of story going on. you have nothing to contribute to the society but pure hate and envy. Take your time and educate yourself. Read about the man’s history and get to know him. We are talking about claims of giving a Ferrari. Like onelove mention, it’s clearly a corvette.

        • igbiki

          A malodorous lickspittle calling me a moron?

          I know Mr Mark more than he thinks he knows himself. In saner climes, Mr mark would be in prison doing time for treason occasioned by his part in the overthrow of a democratically elected gov and the subversion of the constitution.

          We are not only talking about a car but his long line of sleaze and pilfering of our common wealth, which everyone knows including his ex-wife.

          If there is anyone that needs re-education, it is should be a meretricious buffoon like you.

          • RealNGR

            I feel sorry for you. you will never amount to anything. keep chasing a ghost rather than focusing on reality of life. Oh, you are not capable of doing so. I pray for you.

          • igbiki

            You need to be sorry for yoursellf, numbskull penner.

  • Adoki

    I think Tuface should start a car business.

  • onelove

    Why cant you guys get the news right? this is not a Ferrari it is a corvette by Chevy…..it says it on the car….

    • @K_Swiss147

      Don’t be surprised… Many Nigerians are stupid and have tongues quicker than their brains!

  • NigerianEye

    Is Tu Face … as contained in this report? Somebody should help confirm!

  • igbiki

    It wasn’t him, so lets change the headline.

    Tuface gave David Mark a Ferrari car as wedding gift. (-:

  • bitrus

    a dignitary of senator Mark’s status can afford to give 2face an aircraft if he so desired. what is the fuss about him giving out a chevy covette? please concentrate on better things and allow our senate be
