Abuja - Senate President David Mark on Wednesday in Abuja urged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to review the just concluded 2015 general elections with a view to addressing the grey areas agitating the minds of Nigerians.

The President of the Senate made the call while exchanging views with the United States of America’s Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwistle, who paid him a courtesy call in his office at the National Assembly complex.

Mark said that the review of the electoral process was imperative in order to perfect the system that was needed to strengthen and consolidate democracy in Nigeria.
