Yuletide: ‘Time for Sober Reflection’, David Mark Preaches Peace Among Nigerians

Press Statement 

Former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has urged Nigerians to persevere under the current security and socio-political challenges saying, “This period calls for sober reflection and a resolve  to support the efforts of government to overcome the challenges.”

Senator Mark called on both Christians and Muslims to embrace one another in the spirit of the season to commemorate the celebration of Christmas and Eid-Malaud which calls for peace, love, unity and good neighborliness.

The former Senate President stated these in a message to Nigerians to mark this year’s Christmas and Eid-el-Maulud in which he canvassed for citizens to imbibe the true teachings of Jesus Christ and prophet Muhammad (SAW).

He pointed out  that the current security, Economic and socio-political challenges facing the nation  are surmountable  if every one contributes positively towards finding a sustainable solution.

Senator Mark reminded Nigerians not allow political affiliations undermine national interest saying that irrespective of different political parties, “we must remember that Nigeria is one nation of a people with a common interest and welfare of citizens remain the ultimate goal”.

He also advocated for positive synergy between the executive and legislative arms of government without compromising their separate constitutional mandates in order to facilitate the delivery of dividends of democracy to the ordinary man.

The former President of the Senate stressed that collaboration between and among the separate arms of government is inevitable because “it makes for a healthy   and smooth working relationship for public officers to deliver the goods to the people.”

He however counseled that all actions and policies of government must be people- centered in order to achieve the target of uplifting the living standards  of the citizens.

Senator Mark in the same token urged citizens to reciprocate government’s good intentions by being law abiding and supporting constituted authorities as a needed partnership to promote democracy and bring development.
