Former senate president, David Mark Saturday met with ex-military ruler Ibrahim Babangida at his Minna residence.
The meeting lasted for about two hours.
Mark arrived at about 1:30pm in the company of senators Zainab Kure, Tunde Ogbeha and Suleiman Adokwe.
Mark, who has been a senator since 1999, recently declared for president on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform.
Mark’s visit follows other presidential aspirants’ to the former military ruler. Senate President Bukola Saraki, former Vice-President Atiku Abubakar, former governors Attahiru Bafarawa, Sule Lamido and Ahmed Makarfi have all been previously hosted.
Mark is said to have made the trip to seek Babangida’s prayers and support.
Zainab Kure, director-general, David Mark Presidential Campaign Organisation, said that the presidential aspirant can reposition the country for optimal growth.
“He was a former military governor, communications minister and senate president of the federal republic. So he possesses all the required political acumen to lead our country,” she said.
She urged Nigerians “to support the electoral processes” to enable the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) “discharge its constitutional mandate”
