Frontline Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Presidential aspirant, Senator David Mark has urged delegates to the national convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State to vote for him in the interest of unity, stability and prosperity of the nation.
According to a statement signed by his Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh, Senator Mark told party faithful in his Otukpo, Benue state country home on Tuesday, that the peace and unity of Nigeria supersedes any other consideration.
He said that Nigeria has gone through avoidable turbulent times in the last few years pointing out that only a man with the requisite knowledge, experience and passion for the country like him can salvage the situation.
Senator Mark stated that he has a clear road map to revamp the economy within two years and also halt the intractable security challenges if voted into office.
“The situation in the country more than ever before demands ready hands, stable character and commitment to the ideals of nation hood. I am committed to the sanctity of our unity. We must restore the trust and confidence in our people. We all have a stake in Nigeria. We have no other place to call ours”, Senator Mark stressed.
He reminded the delegates to vote wisely at the convention saying “I will be with you and serve the nation diligently. I will be there for you. I will not let you down. I will be the last man standing“.
Senator Mark stated that his record of service in various parts of Nigeria over the years put him in a better stead to serve the nation creditably, reiterating “I am the bridge Nigeria needs now. I will be the bridge between the North and South and between the old and young”.
The former President of the Senate added that he possesses the requisite Executive and Legislative experiences to lead Nigeria to prosperity and restore the trust and respect of the international community.
He expressed confidence that the Governor Ifeanyi Okowa led National Convention Planning Committee would do a good job.
