See What David Mark Will Do If He Becomes Nigeria President
While Senator David Mark is hoping to beat former Vice President Abubakar Atiku and Senate president Bukola Saraki to the Peoples Democratic Party presidential ticket, the Benue State man has made promises if his dream finally comes true.
Mark has been in leadership for more that two decades, but is now asking for just two years to take Nigeria to glory days.
Mark, a former Senate President, made the promise on Tuesday at the PDP state secretariat in Lokoja while on a campaign visit to solicit votes of the state delegates to the presidential primaries in October.
He pledged to do many things differently to revamp the economy saying, “a lot of research had been done on the economy and if given the chance, i would bring them to bear and turn around things’’.
Economic growth under his watch, according to him, will experience tremendous change within 700 days, and will be physical and not based on paper statistics.
“I will do so many things differently. When we put our processes in, the woman who is selling groundnuts by the roadside will feel the impact.
“It is not by mere statistics or indices that we churn out. We want the ordinary people in the streets to feel the impact of the economy on their lives.
“We have young men and women who are neck dip into research and understand the economy of this country,” he said.
On his acceptance by the electorate in the core Northern part of the country, Mark said he had equally worked for candidates from the core North and that now it was their turn to support him.
“I think the core North should support us because we also have supported the core North. It is a give and take thing and we are talking about Nigeria.
“We are not talking about a section of this country. If I don’t have a national support, to be honest with you, I would not want to be a president of this country.
“I want to be president of a united and indivisible country called Nigeria. Call it core north, core south or core whatever, wherever they are, let them support me because we too have supported them,” he said.
