Mark presided over the closed door meeting attended by Delta State governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, Dr. Musa Babayo,  Josephine Anenih, Senator Emmanuel Paulker, Nze Fidelis Ozichukwu,  Sani Toro and the national vice chairman, South West, Ishola Filani.

The Senate President also  played host to the Ondo State Working Committee of the PDP in his office in Abuja.

Mark told party members to remain faithful to the PDP describing it as “the party for today and tomorrow.”

He said the PDP is a national party that accommodates all Nigerians irrespective of ethnic or religious inclination.

He called for peace and unity among members of the party saying the party has the capacity to accommodate all interests, where no one or section would be oppressed or marginalised in the scheme of things.

Earlier, the Ondo State chairman of the PDP, Ebenezer Alabi commended Mark for his selfless service to the nation stressing that his maturity and statesmanship have helped to stabilise the polity.

Alabi said the state chapter of the party is repositioned in order to win elections and enlist into the mainstream politics of the state.
