How To Properly Insult David Mark By Rudolf Ogoo Okonkwo

“We need to change our attitude on how we report things about our country and we should emulate the foreign reporters who never report negative things about their countries."   David Mark, Nigeria's Senate President, complaining about social media being used to insult Nigerian leaders in a speech to reporters covering the Nigerian Senate. 

 

 

I’m going to use some bad words in this column. If you cannot stomach them, please stop reading.

Right now.

Thank you.

 

I do not waste my thoughts on some Nigerian politicians. Despite their antics and cries for attention, I dismiss this bunch of political actors. Some are so rotten that I consider them irredeemable. Some are so insignificant in the overall reformation scheme that I feel they will wither away as soon as the cord of corruption is cut off. Some are nothing but stagnant balls of smoke made of sheer ignorance. Mr. David Mark was one of them. But he shouldn’t be.

 

On a second thought, David Mark is much more than all of the above. He is not just irredeemable. He is also contaminating. He is not just insignificant. His dirty fingers are scratching the canvas of Nigeria. He is not just a stagnant smoke of ignorance on Nigeria’s sky. He is also in motion.

 

In short, David Mark is a lucky bastard. And nothing is scarier than a government of lucky bastards in the life of a nation.

 

Mr. Mark went in front of reporters that cover the senate, men and women that he has pocketed, to complain that the social media is used by faceless people to insult Nigerian leaders like him. He grumbled that these disgruntled operators of social media have no way of retracting their stories. His solution: that the government should control social media to stop its users from insulting leaders like him.

 

What the likes of David Mark do not know is that social media does not operate in a vacuum. It needs content to exist. And social media content is provided by people like David Mark.

 

Social media thrives on the idiosyncrasies, excesses and stupidity of politicians and celebrities. Those in the limelight who do not wish to be in the spotlight of social media should retire to their villages and wait for death. For instance, nobody in social media is losing sleep over Arthur Nzeribe, who is currently at his Oguta home awaiting death. David Mark can do the same in one of his homes in Benue, Ghana, Caribbean, the US, Belize, the UK, Ireland etc.

 

For those unfamiliar with the pedigree of the senate president, here is it in brief. David Mark is a leader in that class of miseducated men and women who rode the wave of unaccountable leadership, looting and ruining Nigeria until the nation became a failure. These are the men and women who failed Nigeria with such a staged craftsmanship that the nation they failed works perfectly well for them. If Nigeria were a tree, these men and women cut the tree and told it where to fall.

 

For those who need more details, this is the essential biography of David Alechenu Bonaventure Mark. Born on April 18, 1948, in Otukpo, he joined the Nigerian army and became prominent as a Major when he was named Secretary of the Abandoned Property Implementation Commission after the Biafra-Nigeria Civil War. In the 1980s, he reemerged as one of the so-called Babangida boys. He became the military governor of Niger state from 1984- 1986. When Babangida took over as Nigeria’s military dictator, he brought Mark close as his Minister of Communication. He played a prominent role in the annulment of the June 12, 1993 election. He headed the gang that threatened to kill M.K.O. Abiola if the military had dared to hand power over to him. He fell out with Gen. Sani Abacha who retired him from the army and he went on exile. At the beginning of this current democratic dispensation in 1999, he became a senator representing Benue South senatorial zone. He supported Obasanjo’s effort to amend the Nigerian constitution to serve a third term. For that effort he collected the lion share of the billions that Obasanjo’s supporters used to bribe senators. He became the Senate president in 2007 as a reward for his loyalty to the PDP.

 

David Mark is a lucky bastard. Not even one of the 400,000 people of his other country, Belize, will nominate him to be a janitor for their senate.

 

Even though he believes that a sergeant in the army is better than a university graduate, nobody knows if Mr. Mark can write his name. But we know that he can open offshore accounts in New Jersey and the Cayman islands. We know that is the place he hid most of the Gulf oil windfall for himself and his boss, Babangida. We know that is where he hid proceeds from NITEL deals he cooked up as Minister of Communication when he famously said that poor people had no need for phones and as such he siphoned the money allocated to his ministry. We know that he spent about 6 million British pounds sterling to purchase significant interest in the 18-hole St Margaret’s Golf Club in Ireland. We know he owns a 2.5 million British pounds sterling home on Thames River in London. We know he has millions and millions of pounds sterling in trust for his numerous children and wives all over Europe and America. We know this because his nasty divorce from wife number five, Victoria Preye, exposed some of his hidden investments.

 

Despite his enormous stolen wealth, here is what David Mark’s epitaph will say. “Here lies a man who admired the trappings of Western civilization but was ignorant of its tenets.” It is the same epitaph for Idi Amin, Olusegun Obasanjo, Ibrahim Babangida and Mobutu Sese Seko Kuku Ngbendu wa Za Banga.

 

On top of David Mark’s head roves a giant question mark. When he opens his mouth remarkable gaffes gush out. It is a mark of complete genuflection of a nation that such a scion of corruption is at the head of the upper house of the people’s assembly. His bland mind marketed as diplomatic is impervious of his environment. Otherwise he would have noticed from his hospital bed that it was Israeli media that kept the heat on until former Israeli President Moshe Katsav was sentenced to seven-years for rape.

 

David Mark is a shameless hypocrite who has absolute disdain for Nigeria. That such an uninspiring character is angling for the presidency of Nigeria is a testament to the hopelessness of the Nigerian project. Put aside his pedigree, Nigeria’s number three man is as shallow as they come. Otherwise he would have heard that it was Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein of the Washington Post newspaper that singlehandedly exposed President Richard Nixon as a crook and forced him to resign.

 

David Mark is old enough to know that “the only countries where newspapers are full of good news are those countries where the prisons are full of good people.” If David Mark is just ignorant, I won’t be scared. I will simply hope that soon, like other ignoramuses like him ruining Nigeria, he will die off with his stupidity and leave Nigeria to its fate. But David Mark is much more than ignorant. He is deliberately manipulative and mischievous. And that is dangerous.

 

David Mark is a lucky bastard. If an American newspaper places its searchlight on him for just 24 hours, as soon as the report comes out, Interpol, FBI, Scotland Yard, KGB, SSS, MSS, BNI, ICPC, EFCC etc will all be fighting over whose handcuffs will be on David Mark’s hands, legs, waist and ankles.

 

Mr. Mark hates a marketplace of ideas because he has no confidence in his own opinion. So he dislikes any media that challenges his opinion and tries to hold him accountable. He has been so used to being worshipped that any deviation from that is considered demeaning and insulting. For Mark and his likes, not appending to their names their fake doctorate degrees or their worthless grand commander of a corrupt and crumbling federal republic is already an insult in and of itself. But Mark is perfectly retaining his right to insult Nigerians, disrespect them and treat them as imbeciles who have no idea what one plus one is.

 

This is why David Mark does not like the social media. He cannot buy them over. He cannot pay them retainership to publish only favorable stories about him. He cannot get them to submit drafts of their stories to his office for approval before publication.

 

He cannot fly them to an expensive resort hotel and give them lectures on how to do their job as the Fourth Estate. He is mad because he cannot stop social media from writing what one of his six wives said in anger.

 

Mr. Mark loves the compromised media that does not ask him what he does for Nigeria for which he gets paid over N600 million a year. He loves the compromised media that will quote him as saying, “I will defend Nigeria’s unity with the last drop of my blood,” but won’t ask him why he renounced Nigeria’s citizenship to become a citizen of Belize when his investment in that country was threatened. He loves the compromised media that will not ask why he loves Nigeria so much but will rather go to Israel for a minor medical treatment.

 

David Mark is a lucky bastard. The best way to properly insult him is to ignore him. That is what I will go back to doing now that I have let out steam.

Bull !!!

You might want to learn how to read and write properly, maybe then you might have something worthwhile to contribute !!!

bull

Dis is rubbish nd lacks credibity and bases

SilentObserver - DON'T BLAME HIS CONSTITUENCY!

We have never voted him in, he has been stealing other's mandates. Obasanjo, the best evil talent hunter ever in Nigeria, always made sure the election was blindingly rigged in Mark's favour.

In the last election, he lost woefully, he was trounced but he still got to the senate through PDP magic. The good people of Benue state are peace-loving as such they kept quiet, may be we blame them for that but at times, silence is golden. They will still see the shameful end of Mark, he will die a shameful death.

EBENEZER SHOGUNLE!!!

People like you are the reason why Nigeria is failing, you've sold your soul for chickenfeed. You need to be ashamed of yourself. In what kind of country is the social media censored? How has Rudolf's write-up damaged the case against censorship?

People like Rudolph are far too ahead of you 'bought' and incompetent journalist who bypass the truth (a core element of your profession) for pittance that will fizzle out. Shame on you Shogunle, You're als a bastard, like Mark, your pay master!

mark is a ritualist

david mark is a bastard and devil second in command who kills anybody at will. David mark has silently murderde more than 500 innoncent souls that talk about him. Rudolf you are lukcy not to be in nigeria.

Nigeria citizenship, Is David Mark A Nigerian?

Please can some one help me with a short explanation on the position of a Nigerian constitution, when one renounces his Citizenship as a Nigerian? When did David Mark become A Nigerian again? was there any vetting of his candidacy?

stupid david mark

Mr Rudolf,you really hit the nail at the head,Mark do not suppose to be our senate president if nigeria is a good and corrupt free country. He is really a thief and will continue to steal until he meets his doom.
How on earth can nigerians allow somebody who opens his mouth as a telecommunication minister to say that (TELEPHONE IS NOT FOR THE POOR)to be senate president? he should hide his face in shame as my 80yrs old mother in my village is using GSM now,MARK should go and die.My prayer is that all nigerian bad leaders must die by earth quake or plane crash as they continue to fly out to bank their loot outside the country.

David Mark Presidency

This is what will become of Nigeria if mark becomes president in 2015; money meant for infrastructure, health and education will be spent policing nigerians on the internet. Those caught abusing the emperor will be missing and some will be found dead.  While you are saying OMG when was the last time you saw him, you will hear a story of someone was found dead.  If you do not want that to become reality, it is time to stop this man.

Nigerians Deserve David Mark

The problem with Nigeria is the "ordinary" Nigerians. All we do is talk, talk and talk. We think we can fight armed robbers by talking and shaming them. Yes, Nigerian politicians are armed robbers -- armed with the army. Yet, we have not figured out that the only solution to repeated armed robbery is to arm yourself also and fight until you can live in peace. Nigeria will never change unless we take it back by force from the robbers who are keeping it by force. No amount of talking would do it.

Mark is evil, he is the devil, he bears the mark of the beast

ThankGod people like Mr Ruddof can come out clearly on the few atrocities commited by this man that bears the mark of the beast, I swear God is my witness, Mark is evil. Mark is from Benue from the a minority that constitute just 30% of Benue population. But let me tell you, since mark assume leadership of the senate, the majority in Tiv that constitutes 70% of benue population suffer a lot in the hands of this beast. 99% of Benue federal government jobsN ranging from army, airforce, navy, police, road safety goes to the minority where mark came from. The beast(mark) has grown horns, he is unstoppabable, he do and undo at the federal and the at state level. God we/Nigerians/Benue people need ur intervene to this beast called mark or this man that have the mark of the beast!

Dovid Mork!

Rubbish!

Mr anonymous, what do you mean by that statement: David Mark's senate passed FOI to law? For your information, we are talking about social media here. Internet based media is not within the power of your senate to manipulate and that is exactly what your man is clamouring for censorship. Pls get it right. Nobody needs any state government to make internet expression free.

US secretary of State Hillary

US secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on an 11- NATION Valedictory tour of AFRICA with visits to next door neighbour Ghana,Senegal,Ethiopia,South Africa etc... But of course won't come near the "Dead Giant" Nigeria,despite all the Boot-licking and butt-kissing by GEJ..! GEJ was in NY not too long ago where he stood "at Attention" while getting a "talk-down" from Mrs Clinton.How much lower can the Comatose Giant sink further into the abyss.Ravaged by unconscionable levels of Corruption at all levels,a worthless Senate led by the Rogue Belizean David Mark,Naija continues adrift like a rudderless Ship without a Captain,while her rulers continue to Steal her blind.

...and they say i got a dirty mouth!!!

so where is your other faggoty half...won't he come out and play?

@ Rudy Og. Okonkwo : Back-up your threat next time!

@ Rudolf Okonkwo:
You sounded a warning that those who cannot fantom insults should stop reading, but brought no cookies. Blood relationship aside, next time you "juice me up" without spitting real fire, I will put my foot into your black arse! Shouting "Bastard" at D. Mark is not enough, even your turkey-peep "research" on the man's bio and antics did not uncover the fact that the fool flies to work in a private helicopter! He pisses on Naijas from the skies of Aboki Abuja, so, he would shit on them on ground with his "shut-the-fuck-up" comment, that's why those lackies calling themselves "journalists" could not probe him for explanation. Davis Mark is a heinous psychopath whose fantasy of ruling Naija is akin to Nero running Rome! Mark is a motherfucker! A rapist with a flare for under-age virgins. A pedophile! Rudolf, call me if you really want the shit-file on D. mark, I know that clown personally. Next time, ask s'one with rpg to pluck D. Mark from our skies!

Mark can only sign the bill

Mark can only sign the bill when it is duly debated by his collegues, he doesn't have the right as a senate president to stop the bill. I think you are David Mark stooge, god will purnish those who looted our country and their supporters like you.

where are morning shit, piss & spit carriers, tundemess & wahala

where are buhari/bakare morning shit, piss and spit carriers? where is tundemess and wahala. if the story is about your masters, you will be all over the place.

The pigs have been overfed!

I can honestly say that if David Mark and his Nigerian Goliaths in crime do not face Nemesis this 2012, MARK IT, AND TAKE ME UP ON THAT, I shall stop writing on these pages.

This is the year men.

I am sticking out my neck that the pigs have been overfed and it is time to take back OUR country, not theirs.

Tick Tock, Tick Tock, TICK TOCK... TIME IS SLOWLY RUNNING OUT FOR THESE DESPERADOES.

OBJ and IBB recent joint statement indicates they are starting to smart under the collar! Between them they had 20 years of unmitigated corruption.

Who is to blame for our National catastrophe?

Either Marks head is stuck up somewhere or Mark is too dim to see what they see!

@Okonkwo kenneddy

Kennedy you are a sadist! what is so special about nigerian senate? They are representative,I have no rsepect for them because they do not deserve it.Their image worth to be tarnish because they are doing what is right.You may be able to say few words in Igbo but you are not Igbo.I believe Useless David Mark pay you to post this comment on the net.Wake up.

Yes! Supported

Bro, the need for that is certain. But the movement for revolution ought not to be taken for granted ! After our revolution, Ruddolf emerges .

Ebenezer Shogunle

Nice one Rudolph, I will only add that this inept and grandlarcenous buffoon attends a multimillion $ church somewhere in Abuja headed by a famously respected GO who has not as much as made a whimper at the monumental tithes and offerings banked in their accounts by mark and his ilk. Therein lies one of the most overlooked purveyors of the rot in the geographical expression - a stenchingly rich institution, banking more money than any other single entity in a space wherein even match-sticks and toothpicks are imported and 70percent of the disposable income is grafted from the commonwealth of the public purse - a morally defunct church, busy ammassing private jets, monstrously luxurious places of worship and educational institutions unaffordable by the masses. A palpable social cancer that mirrors the incompetence, ignorance, idolatory and callousness of markand his ilk.

Ebenezer Shogunle

Disprove that he was central to the humoungous bung paid to the senate to ratify GEJ's ascendancy to the presidency
6. Disprove he is paid N600m per year and recently backed down in shame when the social media made a ruckuss over his intention to up it to N88m per month.
7. Disprove the disgraceful and well documented reneging of his citizenship in order to protect cash and other holdings in another territory.

Ebenezer shogunle or is it

Ebenezer shogunle or is it pdp spokesman, go hide your head in shame and mind you when the revolution begins neither you nor your partners in looting will be spared. sycophant!

david mark

Just shows how dim-witted your Oga DM and the likes of you who glorify him are ! How can you pass the FOI with one hand and call for censorship of the media with the other ? I am sure you are one of the acolytes given 500 naira at every election time to kill and maim innocent citizens in order to entrench him in power. God punish una all ! CARRY ON WITH YOUR GOOD WORK PLS, BROTHER RUDOLPH. SOON AND VERY WE SHALL CHASE OUT ALL THE CRAZY BALDHEADS LIKE DAVID MARK AND HIS COHORTS WITH IGNOMINY. NIGERIA GO SURVIVE !

Ebenezer Shogunle is an inbred he goat

Your stomach turns! Of course it does. With the stolen wealth of Nigeria you have been gorging upon why will it not turn?!

You just wait. I personally do not believe in waiting for God to do what he has given us the power to do. So when we wait, we are planning and strategizing. Not foolishly hoping that tomorrow will be better like you guys think.

There's a revolution coming and we are taking no prisoners. Your time is coming you swine piss!!

@Osisi

You have the right name for what we need to remove all the kleptocentric vermin from Nigeria's throat. And by the way, they can only be removed by OSISI. nothing else will suffice. we need to hear the sounds of buyaka! buyaka! at Aso Rock, NASS, and all the state government houses. for this is the sound of the liberation of the masses(music to our ears).Let all of them have a close intimate relationship with FEAR. Death to all enemies of the FRN

So Thieves Have Lined Up Themselves!

So Thieves Have Lined Up Themselves For 2015?

Thief David A. B. Mark as President?
Thief Ike Ekweremadu as Vice President?
Thief Godswill Obot Akpabio as Senate President?
Can the three of you tell us who you will pick as Speaker of the House of Reps?

Idiots, the wave of change will certainly blow all of you away... The Gadaffi style!

How far is Libya from 9ja? Where is Sadam Hussein and his callous children?
