“Even if you have a knife in my head, I will stand for justice, fairness and equity, Senate President, Senator David Mark told warring factions of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Abuja today.
Responding to the Alhaji Kawu Baraje led faction of the party who visited him at the National Assembly over the unabating impasse, Senator Mark urged the warring groups to come together and uphold a strong and united Party.
“We are stronger and better as one big , strong and united party . We need to work together and make our democracy sustainable,” Senator Mark told his guests.
In finding solution to the crisis rocking the ruling party, he counseled the opposing groups to lay the cards on the table honestly and objectively.
In the National Assembly , Senator Mark stated that the law makers elected on the platform of the party will remain united and cohesive saying that what makes for the good of the nation and her citizens would be their watch word.
To this end , he maintained that the leadership of the National Assembly has no intention to declare any seat of the senators or House of Representative members vacant on account of the crisis hoping that the issues would be resolved amicably soon.
The group also demanded the reversal of the dissolution of the Party Executives in Rivers and Adamawa states, removal of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur as National Chairman of the party, strict adherence to party constitution and total objection to third term from the back door.
The G-7 governors includes Babangida Aliyu of Niger State, Sule Lamido of Jigawa, Murtala Nyako of Adamawa, Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers, Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara , Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso of Kano and Aliyu Wamakko of Sokoto state.
