Mark felicitates with Muslims at Sallah

President of the Senate, David Mark

The Senate President, David Mark, has called on Muslims to pray for peace and stability in Nigeria as they celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Kabir.


This is contained in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Paul Mumeh, in Abuja on Thursday.


Mr. Mark called on Islamic religious leaders to lead their followers properly so that they do not depart from the truth. He noted that Nigeria is passing through trying times, especially security challenges, a development, he said, required that all men and women of goodwill rise up to tackle the menace.

The senate president said the insecurity in the land should not be perceived or seen from the prism of religion but a crime against humanity. He called on all citizens to reinforce “the African spirit of brotherhood, love, solidarity and unity which were the hallmark of our communal life.”


He canvassed that all citizens should as a matter of fact cooperate with government in the task of ensuring peace and unity.


“We all have a stake in the project Nigeria. We must shun divisive tendencies and come together against all forces of darkness that seems to be dragging us back.


“We have come a long way. We cannot at this stage toil with the future of our nation. We desire peace. We need to make progress.’’ He said.


The Senate President pledged that the National Assembly would continue to be guided by the wishes and aspirations of Nigerians in the onerous task of making laws for peace, unity and good governance of the Nation.
