N/Assembly Deletes Mark, Ekwunife As Serving Senators

The management of the National Assembly has deleted the bio-data and photographs of former Senate President David Mark and eight other senators from its website (www.nass.gov.ng).

This comes two months after a Court Of Appeal sitting in Makurdi, the Benue state capital nullified his election.

Mark had been paraded as a senator at the National Assembly since 1999, representing Benue South Senatorial District until November last year when his election was nullified.

However, a look on the website of the National Assembly today, January 25, shows that the bio-data and photograph of Mark who is set to contest with Daniel Onjeh, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate in the February 18 re-run election have been removed.

Joining Mark on the list of the expunged senators include Uche Lilian Ekwunife who was also sacked late last year, George Thompson Sekibo(PDP, Rivers East), Olaka Johnson Nwogu(PDP, Rivers South-East), Osinakachukwu Ideozu(PDP, Rivers West), Abdulrahman Abubakar (APC, Kogi east), and Mao Ohuabunwa (PDP, Abia North).

However, Daily Trust reports that the likes of Nneji Athan Achonu (PDP, Imo North), Mohammed Abdulsalami Ohiare(APC, Kogi Central) and  Ighoyota Amori(PDP) Delta central) who were also sacked last year are still serving senators on the website.

While the pictures and bio-data of Achonu and Ohiare are still on the website, only the bio-data of Amori was seen. Also, the bio-data of Abubakar Yusuf Abubakar who replaced Abba Marafa Bashir of the Taraba Central senatorial district in the senate has been uploaded. However, his picture is yet to adorn the website.
