Former Senate President, Senator David Mark

The Senate President, David Mark, has assured opposition political parties and Nigerians in general that the 2015 elections will not be bloody.

Mr. Mark assured that the elections would free, fair, credible and acceptable.

“Those who lose should accept defeat. People should be reminded that whenever you go into an election, the tendency is that either you lose or win. For every competition there must be a winner and losers should accept defeat,” he said.

The senate president gave the assurance on Thursday in Jos, Plateau State, during the constituency empowerment and development programme of Gyang Pwajok, the senator representing Plateau North Senatorial district, as part of activities to mark his two years in office.

Mr. Pwajok was elected as senator after the death of Gyang Dantong in 2012.
Mr. Mark said Nigeria was witnessing insecurity challenges, but it will not detract from the elections.

According to Mr. Mark, in spite of the insecurity, the People’s Democratic Party, PDP will ensure that the 2015 general elections are conducted into various positions.

“We have challenges, but we are gradually overcoming the challenges and we need the contribution of every Nigerian to be able to overcome the challenges,” he said.

Mr. Mark, on behalf of Mr. Gyang Pwajok, presented a 14-seater bus to the state secretariat of the PDP.

Other items presented were wheelchairs for the physically challenged, medical equipment, 500KVA electrical transformers and computer sets.

The state governor, Jonah Jang, was represented at the event by his deputy, Ignatius Longjan.

There was tight security at the event. Security officials were seen conducting stop and search on people.

    And yet you move around with truck-loads of policemen and soldiers ?

    It’s all a lie, we know you guys are still trying to buy arms from black market. Dumbo is in Israel, as we speak, to use Presidential jet to do what Ayo “Kanye West” Oritsejafor’s plane couldn’t do !

    David Mark and his fellow National Assembly colleagues must stop talking. What they now say is of no consequence for they have contributed practically nothing to Nigerian politics and its affairs. The National Assembly is a drain pipe.
