President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated former Senate President, and Senator representing Zone C Constituency of Benue State, Sen. David Alechenu Mark, on his 70th birthday.
President Buhari felicitated with the family, friends and political associates of the former military officer, who served the country variously as a governor, minister and Senate President.
His spokesman, Garba Shehu, in a statement on Saturday said: “As Sen. Mark turns a septuagenarian, the President commends the maturity, stability and focused legislation that he instituted in the upper chamber during the eight years he served as Senate President, and the dutifulness that culminated in the passing of many bills.
“President Buhari believes the wealth of experience that Sen. Mark had gathered over the years will be most useful for the development of the country, especially in sustaining peace across the country.
“The President prays that the almighty God will grant the former Senate President longer life, good health and wisdom to continue serving his people and the country.
