David Mark Denies Receiving, Sharing N2bn Campaign Fund

Former President of the Senate, David Mark, has denied receiving over N2bn from the Peoples Democratic Party through a National Assembly account for distribution to senators.

Mark, in a statement on Sunday by his Media Assistant, Paul Mumeh, said as a law-abiding citizen, he had answered an invitation by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission to deny the allegation.

He noted that it was “the first and only official statement from the office of Mark on this issue.”

The statement read, “Our attention has been drawn to media reports wherein it was reported that former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, was quizzed by EFCC over some alleged financial transactions.

“To set the records straight, Senator Mark was invited by the EFCC via a letter addressed to the National Assembly to answer questions on the 2015 presidential election campaign funds as it concerned Benue State.

“As a law-abiding citizen, Senator Mark honoured the invitation.

“Curiously, they also alleged that the PDP paid over N2bn into the National Assembly’s account which he, as then President of the Senate, allegedly shared among the 109 senators, including PDP, Action Congress of Nigeria and All Nigerians Peoples Party (members) in 2010.

“Again, to the best of his knowledge, Senator Mark is not aware of such transaction. This simply did not make sense to any right thinking member of the society.

“Senator Mark wondered why anybody would think that PDP will pay money into National Assembly account. He, however, clarified all the issues raised before returning home.

“Senator Mark believes in due process and the rule of law. He has maintained a clean record of public service over the years and will continue to uphold the highest standard of conduct expected of public servants.”

The statement added that politicians across party lines, friends and well-wishers have been on “pilgrimage” to Mark’s house ever since, to identify with him “at this moment.”

He, however, appealed to his supporters, friends and associates to remain calm and see his current travails as a price he has to pay for leadership,” the statement concluded.
