Former Senate President, David Mark, has congratulated former Vice President, Atiku Abubabkar, on his emergence as the presidential flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party for the 2019 general elections.
Mark in a statement by Aba Ejembi, Spokesperson of his Presidential Campaign Organisation made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Monday, urged Nigerians to support Abubakar’s candidature.
The senator who was also a presidential aspirant at the party’s convention on October 6 at Port Harcourt, Rivers, pledged his support to Abubakar to ensure victory for the PDP in the elections.
He said: “I have maintained throughout my electioneering campaign that all the presidential aspirants in in our great party, including Abubakar, were eminently qualified to provide excellent leadership for the nation.
