The onslaught from the public came almost as soon as the news broke
on social networks and blogs; a metalic orange Ferari sports car
pictured at the venue of Tuface and Annie’s wedding in Dubai with words Wedding gift from Senator David Mark to Tuface, Annie scribbled on cardboard paper and stuck to the car, almost ruined the news of Tuface, Annie’s wedding.
Vanguard had not reported this as we awaited confirmation from the
Senate president who has now through a statement issued by his Senior
Special adviser on Media& Publicity Mr Kola Ologbondiyan denied
buying this car gift for Tuface and Annie Idibia.
The statement reads
Senator Mark did not visit Dubai for Tuface wedding rather he
attended the 128th Inter parliamentary Union (IPU) conference currently
holding in Quito, Ecuador. He was also not represented at Mr. Idibia’s
wedding. It is also instructive to state that the President of the
Senate, Senator Mark, did not make a car donation of any kind to Tuface
before departing Nigeria for Ecuador neither did he purchase nor send
any car to Dubai as a wedding gift for the musician or his wife. Who
made the donation on behalf of the President of the Senate?
It is therefore a puerile lie for anybody to state that Senator Mark
bought a Ferrari car worth N47m for Tuface. The allegation is wicked,
ridiculous and irresponsible.
Signed: Kola Ologbondiyan
Special Adviser, Media & Publicity to the President of the Senate David Mark.
