Saraki Congratulates David Mark At 70
Senate President Bukola Saraki congratulated a former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, on his 70th birthday.
In a statement signed by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Yusuph Olaniyonu, on Sunday in Abuja, Dr Saraki described Senator Mark as a patriot and a statesman.
He said the celebrant has distinguished himself as a Nigerian with a vast leadership experience, having served as a two-time Senate President, a Brigadier General of the Nigerian Army, a Minister of Communication, and a military Governor of Niger State.
“Undoubtedly, as our nation’s longest serving Senator and Senate President, Senator Mark has contributed significantly to the growth of the legislature in Nigeria and distinguished himself overtime in the service of our nation — in various capacities and at various levels as a patriot and a statesman,” the Senate President said.
He further prayed that the Almighty God, in his infinite wisdom, grace, and protection, continues to guide the former Senate President in his endeavours.
