As David Mark clocks 66, President Goodluck Jonathan praises him, for his dedication to country’s unity, peace and progress.
In a letter written to congratulate Mark on the occasion of his 66th birthday billed for today, the president expressed his appreciation to Mark for his unflinching support and contributions towards the successful implementation of the federal government’s agenda for national transformation.
In a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, Jonathan said: “As you mark your 66th birthday anniversary, I extend very warm felicitations to you on behalf of my family, the government and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“It is my prayer that Almighty God continues to keep and prosper you, especially as you continue to patriotically give yourself in support of our transformational efforts and in dedicated service to our fatherland.”
The president wished the Senate President a very happy birthday.
Also, the President Jonathan yesterday approved the appointment of Mr. Ikechukwu Oguine as the Coordinator, Legal Services and Company Secretary of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC).
This was also contained in a statement by Abati. Oguine, who has over 29 years of legal experience, hails from Anambra State.
He was previously the General Counsel of Chevron Nigeria Limited and had been a partner in Advisory Legal Consultants, a law firm specialising in oil, gas, power and mining.
Oguine replaced Mr. Anthony Chukwuma Madichie, also from Anambra State, who served as the NNPC Legal Adviser and Secretary to the corporation since February 2011.
