Senate president


President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, has appealed to former President Olusegun Obasanjo and former Military President Ibrahim Badamosi Babangida to sheath their swords in the interest of the nation.

He urged the former Presidents who are elderstatesmen to restrain from making further inflammatory remarks capable of destroying all the efforts they have sunk into building our great nation.

“As statesmen, you cannot afford to resolve your differences on the pages of newspapers. You have contributed immensely to the growth and development of this nation. Your responsibility is to advise those coming after you on the challenges confronting our nation today and in the future,” he said.

He cautioned the followers of these eminent Nigerians not to expand the horizon of this disagreement, adding that “we should continue to pray for peaceful co-existence among all.
