Former Senate President, David Mark, has joined the 2019 Presidential race, promising to fix the Nigerian economy in just two years.
Addressing officials of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, when he picked up the Presidential nomination form at the party’s Secretariat, in Abuja, on Tuesday afternoon, David Mark stated that his Military background is an added advantage.
Recall, that the David Mark retired as a Brigadier-General in the Nigerian Army.
Mark stated that judging by the number of people who have picked the PDP Presidential nomination form, “you can comfortably say that PDP is the choice party in the country.”
Post-Nigeria recalls, that Senate President, Bukola Saraki; former Vice President Atiku Abubakar; Aminu Tambuwal, Governor of Sokoto State; Rabiu Kwankwaso, former Governor of Kano State; are among the bigwigs who have picked PDP Presidential form.
“Anybody who has come here to collect the forms has a blueprint; the blueprint which we title 7:30, representing just two years”, David Mark declared.
He added: “In two years, if given the opportunity, we will turn the economy of this country round, we will solve these security problems, we will bring Nigerians together. The level of distrust in the government today, has never been experienced in the history of this country.
“I have a very good Military background, and have been in politics since 1998. I think I have got the credentials to be able to do what I have promised my team.
“Obviously, there are priority areas, and restructuring is one of them. I think the time has come to restructure this country.”
