Former Senate President, David Mark Sacks Son and 120 of his personal assistants and domestic staff
Following the defeat of the Peoples Democratic Party in the last general elections, former Senate President, David Mark has off-loaded no fewer than 120 of his personal assistants and domestic workers, including his son and younger brother. It was indeed a double tragedy for Mark as his party also failed to return to power in his own Benue State.
Mark led the Senate for eight years,a feature no other has achieved in the history of the Nigeria. David Mark had over 300 personal assistants and domestic workers. Among his workers were his son, Babatunde Mark and his brother, Igoche Mark. While Igoche was his Personal Assistant (PA), his son, Tunde was his Special Assistant on Special Duties and Interior.
However, things fell apart after PDP was booted out of power and the mantle of leadership was taken away from the retired soldier to Bukola Saraki; hence his decision to cut cost by disengaging some of his workers. An insider hinted that some of his domestic workers were even been owed for several months before they were sacked.
