Former Nigerian Senate President Quizzed for alleged corruption
Immediate past Senate President in Nigeria, David Mark quizzed on allegation of corruption
Abuja, Nigeria. Dec. 15, 2017 (AltAfrika)-Immediate past Senate President, David Mark , was quized yesterday by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on allegation for stealing billions of naira, alongside other leaders of the National Assembly during his tenure.
It was gathered that Mark, a former military general was invited to make statements to the commission on how several billions meant for projects at the national assembly were allegedly shared between him and a few others.
He was released to go home after the interrogation, expected to return after the holidays.
Reacting to the development, Comrade James Oche of Door to Door, Mark’s campaign organisation, described the invitation as witchunt.
He said, “Look at the list – Sule Lamido, Atiku, now David Mark. The President should deal with insecurity and monumental failings and not try to bully people who want to get into the ring with him. What is he afraid of, even Mugabe invited and accepted opponents.
“It’s been two years since David Mark lost the Presidency of the senate, why has it taken 2yrs for Buhari to investigate him, this was the number 3 man.
“My conclusion- ‘another classic Buhari specially brewed Daura witchhunt.’ And really it’s a shame – and really people cannot wait to get Buhari kicked out in 2019. We didn’t vote for a military democratic dictatorship.”
