New Year Message

Let’s Make 2018 a Year of Fulfillment -------Mark

The immediate past  President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has urged the governments and citizens alike to brace up to the challenges of nationhood and work harmoniously to make 2018 a year of fulfillment.

Senator Mark in a goodwill message to Nigerians marking the New Year, noted that 2017 was challenging but expressed optimism that 2018 would be fulfilling if governments  at all levels make the people  the centre point of its policies and programme.

He acknowledged the resilience and perseverance of citizens in the midst of socio-economic  and political  difficulties in 2017 and urged them to reignite their undying spirit and enter 2018 with vigor and hope.

Senator Mark reminded the present administration that the period of buck-passing should be over for a more purposeful governance in order to deliver the dividends of democracy to the people.

“I think the period of blame-game should be over by now. It is time this administration give Nigerians purposeful leadership and deliver the dividends of Democracy to the Nigerian people", he stressed.

The former Senate President noted that the present administration has had enough gestation period to deliver on its mandate, Pointing out that dissipating energy trading blames is needless.

Senator Mark also expressed worries over the unabating insecurity situation in the land , a development he  feared may have defied orthodox methods of combating crimes.

To this end, he advocated for an urgent review of the security arrangement in the country in order to curtail the multi-faceted security challenges ravaging the nation.

Security, he explained, should be given  utmost priority "because no meaningful development can take place in an atmosphere of crime or insecurity".

Senator Mark urged security operatives  to rise up to the challenge.

According to him, “I believe that Nigerians deserve to live in peace, in any part of the country without fear of intimidation or molestation. We need to cooperate with each other to make progress . We can work together to make our nation great again".
