President of the Senate, Senator David Mark has described the ruling of the Supreme Court on the 2011 presidential election as a true reflection of the wishes expressed by the majority of Nigerians at the April polls.

Senator Mark in a congratulatory message to president Goodluck Jonathan, vice president Namadi Sambo and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) family said the victory should be deployed for the service to our country men and women.

He specifically enjoined president Jonathan to use the judicial victory as spring of consolidation for the transformation agenda.

In a statement by Kola Ologbondiyan, the Special Adviser, Media & Publicity to the President of the senate, Mark however advised that Nigerians must build the culture of accepting election results particularly when they cannot genuinely win at the polls.

According to Mark:" it is only here that people go to the polls with a mindset that they must win. We must build the culture of accepting the final decision of the electorate."

He urged the loser to join hands with Mr. President to work for the good of all citizens.
