  1. David mark serve nigeria with loyal and honest, that is why he has that oppotunity.his like that criminal oloju kangba bukola saraki

  2. Personally, I have high respect for David Mark for his maturity and sincerity of purpose. I’d really hoped he took over from President Jonathan.

    1. David Mark should bury his head in shame. Eight years as a Senate president and sixteen years as a senator. Nothing to show for his constituency. Shameless human being. Too gready.

  3. okpowulu k’doma, please come and lead us, help us, show Nigeria your wisdom if you can lead those big horses for eight years. We need you DAVID MARK. Kocho

  4. God will help Nigeria. Nigerians need leaders that have their interests at heart not some bunch of criminals in disguise. I believe God is beginning to hear our prayers.

  5. For what I am seeing now Dr bukola saraki will be the best senate president nigeria will ever have like before. Is not a Mumu senate is very intelligent man.
