Mark was in Makurdi in continuation of his consultation with delegates ahead of the presidential primary election proposed for Port Harcourt, Rivers State, and to also participate in the governorship primary election.

State chairman of the PDP, Sir John Ngbede, and Speaker of the state House of Assembly, Titus Uba, who spoke on behalf of the delegates, promised to be in the forefront of Mark’s presidential campaign.

Kwankwaso vows to end insurgency

Meanwhile, Kwankwaso has promised to put to an end to all forms of security challenges confronting the nation, if elected President in the 2019 elections.

Kwankwaso stated this in a message to Nigerians to mark the country’s 58th independence anniversary.

According to him, the occasion should have been that of pomp and merriment “but the humongous perils confronting the country at the moment call for sober reflections and deep introspection.”

He said:  “I assure you, we would make the country a safe and secured place and return peace and serenity to all the trouble spots in the land.

‘’Our middle belt people will no longer have to flee their land seeking refuge elsewhere, rural bandits will no longer have a field day killing our brothers and sisters in Zamfara State and in any other part of the country as the case may be.”
