David Mark Mocks Gov. Ortom Over Wheelbarrow Distribution


Former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, on Tuesday declared that no state governor can compete with the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike.

Speaking during the commissioning of Brick House and the chapel at government house, Port Harcourt, Mark said both projects were testimonies to his declaration.

The former Senate President also used the occasion to berate his state governor, Samuel Ortom for allegedly giving out wheel barrows instead of embarking on meaningful projects.

According to Mark, “I was wondering why the governor called me to commission this Brick house, but through his remarks, I have been able to put two and two together.

“He said the house was completely abandoned, and for those of you who remember Major Mark. When I was here, I was chairman of abandoned property implementation committee.

“So I think it is appropriate that I am the one to commission this Brick House.

“This is not my first visit to commission projects in Rivers state. I was here less than a year ago to commission roads. And I noticed the tremendous improvement in the deliverance of the dividends of democracy in Rivers state.

“It is not about the amount of money at one’s disposal, but the commitment. And, this governor has worked in a manner that no other governor can compete with in this country.

“While people are commissioning roads, commissioning bridges, commissioning good projects, in my own state, Benue, we are giving out wheel barrows to empower people, so you can compare and contrast."
