We did not elect David Mark Senate Leader – National Assembly

Senator Dino Melaye, has affirmed that former Senate President, David Mark, was not sworn in as the Majority Leader of the Senate as reported by the media.
He said, “It is not possible for a minority senator to be a Majority Leader. What happened is that out of respect for the former Senate President, he was sworn in as an individual instead of the groupings that took place. So, we are using this opportunity to correct the erroneous impression out there that he was sworn in as the Senate Leader.”

The Kogi State indigene also dispelled reports that 12 APC senators joined the PDP to elect the new Senate President.
“That is totally baseless and not true. To start with, not all the 49 senators of the PDP were present when the election of the Senate President took place. This is malicious, capricious and there was no voting in the case of Senate President,” Melaye said.
