The wife of the President of the Senate, Mrs. Helen Mark, on Monday described as a “wicked lie” reports linking her with the consultants that organised the recruitment exercise of the Nigeria Immigration Service in which some applicants lost their lives.
This was contained in a statement signed by the Special Adviser (Media) to the President of the Senate, Mr. Kola Ologbodiyan.
Mrs. Mark, expressed shock at the reports which she said was based on a rumour and “a mere fabrication of the imagination of those behind it.”
The statement partly read: “It is very strange to me because I do not know the consultant that organised the recruitment exercise neither did I play any role in the recruitment exercise.
“I have no relationships of any sorts and in whatever form with the said consultant.
“This moment demands solemnity and mourning of the precious souls that were lost in the tragic incidents that occurred last Saturday.
“As a mother, I honestly sympathise with the parents of these youths as well as the nation in general over the loss of our children.”
