According to a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Paul Mumeh, the Sentae President stated this at the 53rd Independence anniversary church service at the St. Mulumba Catholic Chaplaincy, Apo, Abuja.
While describing the insurgency in the north as a wrong way of life, Mr. Mark recommended psychiatric tests for the perpetrators.
“Those who are perpetrating violence attacks and all those behind it need to re-examine themselves. They are insane and truly abnormal,” he said.
The Senate President noted that the country was in dire need of prayers; for peace, unity and love to reign supreme in the country.
He also advocated an egalitarian society of equal opportunities for all Nigerians where everybody would strive to do things that can unite the country.
His words, “We also need to ask God to give us a glorious future. A nation where no one is oppressed – where those in positions of authority will do it to the best of their abilities and with the fear of God.”
Mr. Mark also noted that “very often, Nigerians crave for positions but undermine the huge responsibility of service to the people.”
He tasked his fellow leaders on the need to strive towards working for the people and make progress as a nation.
