Mark Denies Presidential Ambition

Mark Denies Presidential Ambition

President of the Senate David Mark has denied reports of his preparations for the 2015 presidential elections, saying such reports are the handiwork of mischief makers.

According to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Kola Ologbondiyan, on Tuesday, the reports of his 2015 ambition were efforts to create disaffection between him and President Goodluck Jonathan.

The statement read in part, “Our attention has been drawn to the actions of some mischief makers who are bent on causing disaffection between President Goodluck Jonathan and the President of the Senate, Senator David Mark.

“The trademark of this group is to consistently announce a presidential ambition or interest on behalf of the President of the Senate.

“For this set of mischief makers, the premises of the National Assembly is either flooded with “Mark for President’ forms or distinguished senators are forming groups to canvass the said presidential interest. Nothing can be farther from the truth.”

“It is imperative to state and emphatically too, that Senator Mark and President Jonathan are on the same page in the onerous task of providing democratic dividends for Nigerians.”
