David Mark, former senate president, has awarded an academic scholarship to Divine Okoacha, a nine-year-old boy, in Delta state.


Mark announced the scholarship on Friday at the funeral programme of the mother of Paul Mumeh, his chief press secretary (CPS), in the Abavo community, Ika south LGA of Delta.


The former senate president said the scholarship would run till the secondary school level, adding that it was awarded because he “admires the swag of the boy”.


“Today, I have decided to please God. So I’m extending an academic scholarship to this nine-year-old boy whose swag I admire a lot,” Mark said.


 “The boy arranged himself very well, his poise and comportment are superb. I am therefore putting him on scholarship from today till he finishes secondary school.”

He said his spokesperson has been a “loyal and reliable” person to him even though he left office eight years ago.


“Paul Mumeh is the most reliable person. Despite being out of government, Paul has remained glued to me and my family,” he said.

 “He has not stopped to put me in the better narrative, intercepting the missiles from the media and firing back on my behalf.”


Dignitaries at the funeral included Charles Aniagwu, Delta state commissioner for works (rural roads and coastal areas), Sola Adebayo, Warri-based media entrepreneur and business mogul, and Joe Obi, director of corporate communication and market development at the National Insurance Commission, and Friday Olokor, group politics editor of The PUNCH, among others.
