6f419e72c507feb17578d6db5cfe08c6Senate President David Mark on Saturday called for a smooth electoral process that would make the 2015 general elections most credible and acceptable by all parties vying for positions.

According to Mark, the electoral process should be based firmly on the rule of law and will of the people rather than resort to violence or coercion, no matter the differences held by politicians.

Addressing members of his constituency in his country home at Otukpo, Benue State, ahead of the House of Assembly primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, the senate president noted that elections should be guided by rules and acceptable international best practices.

Mark, who warned against desperation by political office seekers, reminded them that an election was like a game in which winners and losers must emerge.

In his words, “Whichever side of the divide we may find ourselves, we must rise above sentiments to accept the verdict of the elections as long as the rules are complied with.

“We are all stakeholders in the project Nigeria. Both leaders and the led must therefore work in one accord to make Nigeria a better place. This task demands collective responsibility”, he asserted.

Meanwhile, the senate president has expressed regrets over the massacre of innocent worshippers at the Kano Central Mosque on Friday, describing the gruesome murder as an act of madness by the perpetrators.

He lamented that those who carried out the attacks had lost their senses as humans and urged all right thinking members of the society to rise up against the terrorists, who he said were threatening the peace and unity of Nigeria.

While admonishing security operatives not to be discouraged by the recalcitrant attitude of the insurgents, the senate president urged them to be further strengthened in the role of protecting and defending the territorial integrity of the country.
