Here is a golden opportunity: Nigeria’s Senate President, David Mark will clock 65 years on 8 April.
It is an opportunity to send him your birthday wishes; what you really think about him.
Born in 1948 as David Alechenu Bonaventure Mark, he has been the longest serving President of the Senate of Nigeria.
His era coincides with the time Nigerian senators and reps are the highest paid in the world, earning more salary than US congressmen and the President of the United States of America. Mark’s tea and sundry allowance is more than the salary of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
Senate President David Mark: 65 years old on Monday 8 April
An Idoma, he represents a constituency in Benue State.
Before his foray into politics, Mark was a military governor of Niger State and a former minister of communications, with his most memorable, probably most regrettable quote being: “the telephone is not meant for every Tom, Joystick and Harry”. Anyway, thank God for the GSM. Everybody now owns the telephone in Nigeria!.
Mark attended St. Francis Catholic Practising school in Otukpo before attending the Nigerian Military School.
Mark was elected to his position as President of the Senate of Nigeria on June 6, 2007.
Mark was once involved in a very expensive divorce, with a former wife.
He enjoys golf, tennis, and squash. He is a Christian.
President Goodluck Jonathan has praised David Mark for consistently demonstrating “exceptional patriotism” and capably leading the National Assembly into a productive partnership with the executive arm of the Federal Government in the overriding interest of national progress and development.
At 65, David Mark needs to hear the truth from the Parliament of the Nigerian people.
Send him your birthday wishes, now!
