Nigeria will over­come its try­ing mo­ments – Mark

Daily Trust - - NEWS - By Tu­raki A. Has­san

Se­nate Pres­i­dent David Mark has ad­vised Nige­ri­ans not to lose faith in the coun­try say­ing that the cur­rent se­cu­rity chal­lenge was a try­ing mo­ment that would be over­come.

A state­ment is­sued by the se­nate pres­i­dent’s spokesman Paul Mumeh quoted him as say­ing noth­ing would be left to chance in the fight against ter­ror­ism by the govern­ment.

“No­body can pre­tend or deny that we have se­ri­ous se­cu­rity chal­lenges. But we can all make a huge dif­fer­ence if we co­op­er­ate and col­lab­o­rate with each other to­wards find­ing a last­ing so­lu­tion to the prob­lem,” he said.

He said “from mil­i­tancy in the Niger Delta to kid­nap­ping and in­sur­gency, none of these en­gen­ders progress or de­vel­op­ment. We must re­solve to say no to all these evil machi­na­tions draw­ing us back other­wise de­vel­op­ment would be elu­sive.”

Ad­dress­ing his Benue South con­stituents from the nine lo­cal govern­ment ar­eas mak­ing up the Benue South Se­na­to­rial district in his Otukpo, Benue state coun­try home yes­ter­day, Se­na­tor Mark urged them to con­tinue to keep the peace and live in har­mony with their neigh­bors.

He re­minded the people to work with au­thor­i­ties in or­der to sus­tain Nigeria’s demo­cratic project be­cause it is the only form of govern­ment that is truly rep­re­sen­ta­tive and ca­pa­ble of bring­ing div­i­dends of democ­racy to the people.
