Senate President, David Mark yesterday met with President-elect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, in his Abuja residence.
The meeting, which was held at the instance of the President-elect, lasted for about 30 minutes.
Sources close to Mark said the duo discussed national issues.
The meeting followed a series of others the president-elect had with heads of foreign missions, top government officials and other prominent leaders.
And amid claims that he has jettisoned his return to the incoming 8th National Assembly, Senate President David Mark has denied rumours, saying he would still remain a Senator.
Mark is returning to the new Senate as member and not its President following the failure of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to maintain its majority of the Upper House.
While the opposition All Progressives Congress, APC has 60 members in the incoming NASS, the PDP has 49 members.
When contacted yesterday, Mark’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Paul Mumeh, denied the rumour, saying Nigerians like reading people’s minds. He stressed that nothing like that is in the offing, adding that to “my knowledge it’s the figment of the imagination of the authors of the rumour.”
Mumeh said that the speculators should allow his boss to make pronouncement before jumping to conclusion on the matter.
Mark a fifth time Senator has been at the helms of affairs of the Upper House since 2003.
He had recently declared that despite of the poor performance of the PDP at the just-concluded polls, he will remain in the party to rebuild it.
Mark stated that he would be the last man standing in the party.
