Nigeria will overcome its trying moments – Mark
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.
