Former Senate President, David Mark, has formally obtained his nomination and expression of Interest forms, with a vow to fix the myriads of problems facing the country in two years.
He disclosed this Tuesday in Abuja at the national headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Mark said that the level of distrust in the country is alarming and there is need to bring Nigerians together to foster national unity.
“I have come to collect the forms for presidential nomination. You can comfortably say that PDP is the choice; it is the choice party in the country. Obviously, anybody who has come here to collect the form has a blueprint and I, along with very young boys and girls or men and women, have a blueprint,” he said.
“The blueprint, which we titled ‘730’, represents just two years — two years if given the opportunity to turn the economy of this country round. We will solve the insecurity problems, we will bring Nigerians together. The level of distrust in the country today has never been experienced in the history of this country.
“I have a very good background and I have been in politics since 1998 when I won my election into the Senate. I think I have the credentials and background to be able to do what I promise my team will do. It is a team that is going to work together to salvage this country to bring Nigeria to where it has been respected.
“Obviously, there are priority areas and restructuring is one of them; and I think the time has come for us to restructure this country so that Nigerians will feel that they are part and parcel and integral part of this country.”

Lol @ David Mark running for President…
Between him, Atiku, Saraki and all the other aspirants of dubiously attained financial prosperity, one thing is certain, for those who make money from working for politicians, a cash tsunami is about to hit the PDP…

When you see Former Vice president for 8 years (Atiku Abubakar), former Senate President for 16 years (Senator David Mark) and the present Senate President (Bukola Saraki) all aspiring for the position of the President under a single Party.
Be sincere, What comes to your mind?
