ABUJA – Former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has showered encomium on Nigeria’s immediate past President, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan as he turns 60 tomorrow.
In a tribute to Dr. Jonathan on his special day, the lawmaker commended him for his leadership and courage in the interest of the corporate existence of Nigeria when it mattered most.
He lauded the sacrifice of the former President to the stability of the nation adding that his decision to concede defeat in the 2015 Presidential polls was a testament to his undying love for Nigeria and democracy.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Paul Mumeh, Mark noted that the legion of international engagements and responsibilities being extended to the ex-President by the international community since he vacated office is a testimony that he left a credible legacy.
He therefore enjoined Jonathan to remain steadfast and focused as a statesman who will be willing to contribute to national development in Nigeria and Africa.
