A group of youth of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, has endorsed David Mark, a senator from Benue and former Senate President of Nigeria, for the position of president.
According to a Daily Trust report, the PDP youth group on Wednesday, October 11, 2017 called on Senator Mark for 2019 to content for president under the platform of the main opposition party in the country.
The national coordinator of the group, Abdullahi Ali Kano told the newspaper that the it has concluded arrangements for the takeoff rally for a campaign in support of David Mark in Sokoto this weekend.
Ali Kano, who served as a member of the 2015 PDP Presidential Campaign Council and delegate to the 2014 National Conference, said the senator has all the qualities to be a leader.
“Mark has never, since the inception of the PDP, left the party. For 19 years, he has remained faithful and loyal to the party. He has shown that he is not a fair-weather politician,” Ali Kano said.
He said the rally which would be replicated in all the 36 states of the country, including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) would be in the overall interest of the country, “especially the PDP members.”
“David Mark is a disciplined military officer, an astute politician who is tested and trusted. He presided over the National Assembly for eight years without blemish or blame. Nigerians will always remember him for saving our country from constitution crisis during Umaru Musa Yar’adua’s administration when he came up with the Doctrine of Necessity,” Ali Kano said.
