The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Mr Yakubu Dogara, has extolled the virtues of former President of the Senate, Sen. David Mark on the occasion of his 70th birthday anniversary.
In a statement on Saturday in Abuja, Dogara described Mark as an elder statesman and patriot.
“Distinguished is an attribute you have earned for yourself from the excellent way you discharged your responsibilities in all roles you found yourself,” Dogara said.
The Speaker noted that Mark had left masterstrokes in the way he superintended over matters of state.
According to Dogara, Mark puts national interests above personal interest from his days in the military to making the proverbial ‘lightening strike twice’ as the president of the Senate.”
The Speaker prayed God’s continuous blessing on the former Senate President in the area of sound health and more wisdom to enable him contribute his quota to the growth and development of Nigeria.
