Don’t write off Buhari govt’s efforts to reposition Nigeria, Mark tells Nigerians

Former Senate President, Senator David Mark

A former President of the Senate President, David Mark, has urged Nigerians not to write off the efforts President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government is making to reposition the country in spite of the security and socio-economic challenges.

Mr. Mark’s call is contained in a statement signed by his Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh, and issued in Abuja on Thursday.

He, however, advised the Federal Government to make the Nigerian people the focus of all its actions and policies in order to uplift the living standard of the citizens.

The former senate president also urged the people to reciprocate government’s good gestures by being law-abiding.

“We must at all times support constituted authorities as that is the only way to promote democracy, good governance, and development.

“This period calls for sober reflection and a resolve to support the efforts of government to overcome the challenges,’’ the statement said.

He noted that the current security, economic, and socio-political challenges in the country could be overcomed.

The statement, therefore, urged Nigerians not to allow political differences to affect the national interest, saying “all hands must be on deck to protect the country.

“We must remember that the interest and welfare of citizens remain the ultimate goal of government.’’

Mr. Mark called on both Christians and Muslims to embrace one another in the spirit of the Christmas season.

He advised Muslims to use the Christmas period “which coincides with the celebration of the birth of Prophet Muhammad’’ to embrace peace, love and ensure good neighbourliness.

“Christians and Muslims should imbibe the true teachings of Jesus Christ and Prophet Muhammad,’’ he said.

On the relationship between the legislative and the executive arms of government at the national level, Mr. Mark said a positive synergy must be formed without compromising the constitutional mandates of each arm.

“This is so because it makes for a healthy and smooth working relationship for public officers to deliver the goods to the people,’’ the statement added.

    …may God punish that your dirty mouth!!!

  • Enemona

    AGIP!

  • Comfortkay

    It is actually Senator David Mark party People Destruction Party (PDP) that have daily problem with the government and it will be nice for him to shut his party mouth, they have rule Nigeria for 16 years.

  • Chuks

    And a voice came from corruption in hell saying: Mark is my beloved son, (don’t) listen to him.

    • Tunji Olarewaju

      Lolzzzz!

    • eddy

      He is one of the goats that fed fat on the yams for a long time… so he should know when corruption is been tackle as no more yams to be consumed no more.

  • absam777

    Mr Corruption. It is you that we are writing off. Stop dropping Buhari’s name for your salvation. Your photo opportunity protege Saraki knows that Buhari cannot save him too. We are watching you all.

  • Du Covenant

    Nonsense……,where were you when ‘fortunato’ left the country adrift?. By the way what are you still seeking to do in the Senate that you have not done till now?….what a deadwood!.

  • MushinSpeaks

    Buhari is committed to reposition and reconstruct; the PDP does know they have left a deplorable State to the APC but with strong will and commitment to fulfil promises, this country will be great again.

    • Burning spear

      Even if u send APC to the USA–to run the government there they will fail—————because the party is filled with certificate forgers–they would not be able to rule—-That is why they are often suspicious of everybody in Nigeria even the truck pushers in Lagos

      • Buhari4Ever

        Deri Orbuka, the Wailing Wailer in Chief of Ijawland

        • Otile

          In as much as I know that Deri is a drunkard, I also admit that he is not always drunk. When he is high on kinkana he start abusing Igbo people, but when he sober he makes a lot of sense.

          For you @ImamBuhari4Ever, start learning to ignore when he is drunk but concentrate with his good information when he is sober. You always call him names without countering his comments with your own informed knowledge. You guys in APC don’t have anything to offer. He beats all of you hands down. I wish he was not a hater and bigot everybody would value his writing. Those of us who are open-minded can always decipher when is sober and we value his information. He offers more informed information than most yoruba media house. Give the devil his due.

  • Tunji Olarewaju

    Tell that to Metuh and his biafool brothers

  • Ologbonlolode

    If my recollections aren’t failing me, Oga David Mark said same thing when GEJ and his gangs were in power! I even heard with one ear that Philanthropist David Mark is currently busy constructing roads and bridges for his people ahead of the re-run elections and some morons are commending him for this! Hmmmmm … let’s ask Oga Mark where the money for these constructions is coming from? Why were the roads and bridges not constructed in the last 8 years he was the Senate President? How did he come about this stupendous wealth as he is not known to own any mega-business apart from his career in the military and foray into politics? Surely, PMB and his administration do not need your advice, admonition or pleading to the public! We know who you are and we know who to vote for and follow. It is advisable you stop abusing our collective intelligence with your so warped and idiotic pleading which is rather presumptuous as it will soon be your turn to account for our stolen billions under your watch. Na turn by turn Oga Mark! Shut the stinking hell up please!!!

  • Very Proud Oily IZON Redeemer

    Is David Mark now a member of APC or the PDP–? Some of these our local looters in the Senate, who left the army to join politics, are too beggarly in with their regional thoughts–Senators-from the Republican party in the USA often behave themselves in the USA. Simply because they know one day they would be held accountable for their sins—in the Senate——–Not mumu former Senate presidents like David Mark–an Opportunist who can hardly ever work to improve the lot of the masses–A first class traitor-who betrayed the trust reposed in him by Jonathan and his people–who are being killed by the Fulanis like goats—Thinks such childish talks will enable Buhari hand-over his senate seat back to him abi?

  • Oh!

    Write off whatever you feel like writing off. President Buhari is on a mission and will not be distracted by silly people saying silly things to other silly people.

    Like him, dislike him………it does not matter! Just Like Operation zaman lafiya dole, Buhari will make your life better with or without your consent.

  • shola

    “in order to uplift the living standard of the citizens.”
    But how? When your last boss PHD Jonathan said stealing is not corruption.

    “all hands must be on deck to protect the country.”
    Aha! When billions of Naira of tax-payers monies are being syphoned into dubious havens and misappropriated. And at the same time 100s of our
    soldiers dying for lack of ammunitions, leaving 1000s of vulnerable innocent Nigerian dying or rendered homeless through the BH insurgency.

    “to embrace peace, love and ensure good neighbourliness.“
    Bravo! And who is your next neighbour? Not an okada man – that for sure. Birds of the same feather fly together.

    “On the relationship between the legislative and the executive arms of government at the national level, Mr. Mark said a positive synergy must be
    formed without compromising the constitutional mandates of each arm.”
    ”Exactly! When Saraki gathered his hoodlums in the senate to accompany him to the court – unsanctioned.

  • Wilfred Bankole Ademokun

    Good talk from David, but why can’t he tell the former DORO PRESIDO JONATAN and their POVERTY DEVELOPMENT PARTY [P D P] TO REMEMBER THE MASSES when they are DORO LOOTING the country. he is now the technical adviser to A. P.C ELERIN’S GOVERMENT.

  • Joe igbokwe

    SENATOR DAVID MARK, DO YOU NEED TO TELL THE WAILING WAILERS? THEY KNOW IT. IF THEY CLAIM OTHERWISE THEN THEY MUST BE ETHICAL LIARS FROM THE PIT OF HELL. PRESIDENT BUHARI IS ON A RESCUE MISSION. THE WAILERS, THE LOOTERS, THE SCAVENGERS, THE IRREDEEMABLE THIEVES, THE UNCONSCIONABLE PILLAGERS AND PLUNDERERS OF THE COMMON PATRIMONY KNOW THIS PAINFUL TRUTH BUT THEY ARE TOO DIRTY TO ADMIT IT. PDP DESTROYED AND RUINED NIGERIA BUT APC WILL RESTORE THE GLORY OF NIGERIA. APC WILL TAKE BACK OUR STOLEN NIGERIA FROM CULTURAL SAVAGES. APC WILL REPOSITION NIGERIA. APC WILL DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY. APC IS NOT PDP. VERY SOON, VERY SOON THE REMAINING VESTIGES OF PDP WILL KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN egbe ( kite) na egbe(gun)

  • Maria

    While some e-rats are ranting here their leaders are already queuing behind Buhari…lol!

  • favourtalk
