Photos: David Mark sworn in as Senator for the sixth time
The Senator representing Benue South, Senator David Mark was today,
March 2, sworn-in into the Senate for a record 6th time.
The Appeal Court sitting in Markurdi annulled the election of the former
Senate President last year and he was declared winner of the re-run
election held on Saturday, February 20.
Senator Mark was sworn in at exactly 11 am in the hallowed chamber by
the Senate President Dr. Bukola Saraki after taking the traditional oath
of office and allegiance.
Shortly after the swearing in, Senators at the
plenary session rose in solidarity with Senator Mark as they took turns
to hug and exchanged banters with him.
He is the only Nigerian to have contested a Senatorial position six
times, won and was sworn in accordingly. He was Senate President from
2007 to 2015.
