I will defend legislature at all cost – David Mark

David MarkSenate President David Mark on Wednesday promised to resolve the looming crisis in the legislature, following the defection of the Speaker, House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, to the All Progressives Party (APC).

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), on which platform the Speaker rode to the house, is protesting the development with a call on him to resign.

Addressing other senators at plenary, Mark said “I will do all I can to resolve the current impasse, although the matter is already in court of law; so we cannot, therefore, discuss the issue formally here.

“I want to assure you that I will do the needful to protect and defend the legislature at all cost.”
