“Our party recalls Senator Mark’s political sagacity as president of the senate in pulling our nation from the brinks of constitutional crisis and ensuring a stable polity, massive economic development, national cohesion and Constitutional order that characterized the PDP administration at that the time.
“The PDP salutes Senator Mark at this auspicious occasion and prays to God to bless him with many more years in good health for the benefit of our dear nation.
