I attribute my success to God, David Mark – Ekweremadu


The Deputy President of the Senate, Dr. Ike Ekweremadu, has attributed his successes to former Senate President, Senator David Mark.

He made the attribution during the 70th birthday celebration of David Mark in Otukpo, Benue State.

Ekweremadu said that Mark’s era as head of the Upper Chamber left an indelible mark on Nigeria’s democracy.

The lawmaker said, “I attribute all my successes to God and David Mark. David taught me two things that l can’t forget; how to play golf and pilot helicopter, but l failed all because he gave me too much jobs to do.”

He said further that he did well in the things learnt from Mark, except golfing that he never had the time to learn properly and piloting a helicopter which he attempted but landed in a cassava plantation.

He lauded Mark for helping him “through all my tribulations and successes in my political journey.”

He said the National Assembly experienced rare stability due to Mark’s political qualities, especially in constitutional amendment, electoral reforms and the doctrine of necessity.

He added, “Mark became a better solution to Nigeria’s problem between 2007 and 2011. I urge him to continue.”
