Leading Presidential aspirant Senator David Mark today told Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) delegates to the National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers State to vote for him as the candidate of choice that would usher in peace, unity and prosperity to the nation.
Welcoming delegates to the convention, Senator Mark maintained that “I’m well equipped and prepared for this assignment. My blueprint is designed to address grey areas and imbalances in our national life”.
He refuted insinuations in some quarters and submitted that “my credentials and wealth of experience puts me in a very good stead to win. I know other aspirants would step down and vote for me. I’m the aspirant to beat.
“Our program would give every citizen a sense of belonging. No one should be oppressed or marginalized in our country”.
Gainful employment through industrialization and agriculture, functional Education, improved health care system among others, he said, would be given priority if elected.
Senator Mark added that he has traversed the length and breadth of Nigeria and has come to the inevitable conclusion that “all we need is good governance anchored on equity and justice for all”.
He stated that peace and unity would be an offspring of justice and equity.
Senator Mark noted “We know those who are good party men and women. We know those who absconded when we had challenges. We have rebuilt and rebranded the party. They are welcome back but it will be unjustified for them to inherit the product of our struggle”.
Senator Mark counseled party faithful to be guided by good reasons in their choice of the PDP presidential candidate pointing out that “those who were fair weather friends yesterday would not be different tomorrow”.
