Former President of the Senate, Senator David Mark, has urged stakeholders in the electioneering process to guide against any form of malpractices so that the results will reflect the wishes of the people.
Answering questions from reporters after casting his vote along with his wife, Helen, during the ongoing Governorship and State Assembly elections in Otukpo, Benue State, Senator Mark urged the electoral umpire, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security operatives to ensure that the results represent the votes cast by the electorate.
Senator Mark noted that the process has been peaceful so far pointing out that “a peaceful election is the desire of all Nigerians to usher in a new administration seamlessly.”
He further stated: “So far, the process has been smooth and orderly here in my area. I hope the process will continue seamlessly through out the country.”
Senator Mark added that a free and fair election would guarantee a peaceful society which would ultimately engender progress in the country.
