Abuja - The Senate President, David Mark, on Thursday called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to carry out an inquest into the 2015 general elections.
This is contained in a statement issued by Paul Mumeh, his Chief Press Secretary, in Abuja.
While receiving the United States Ambassador to Nigeria, James Entwhistle, Mark said that although INEC performed well but it needed to improve on all the grey areas before the next exercise.
"On the whole, INEC did well, the security operatives and all Nigerians deserve commendation, the introduction of the card reader is a novel idea but its shortcomings must be addressed.

"The successful conduct of the elections has demonstrated that Nigerians can address their problems without hindrance.
"Our President Goodluck Jonathan deserve commendations for immediately conceding defeat and congratulating the president-elect Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, an act that put paid to anticipated violence,"he said.
In his remarks, the US Ambassador congratulated Nigeria on the peaceful conduct of its elections.
Entwhistle said that the new card reader technology would serve as a template for other nations to emulate.
