Abuja - The Head of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Election Observation Mission (EOM), John Kufuor, called on all stakeholders in the upcoming elections to ensure credible polls.
“Our prayer is that all Nigerians would act very responsibly throughout the election process so that at the end of the day we have a free, fair and peaceful election for the good of the people and the nation,” the former Ghana President said.
He reaffirmed the total neutrality of the ECOWAS Mission, which is made up of long-term observers, who have been in Nigeria since February and the short-term observers being deployed across the country’s geopolitical zones ahead of the general elections.
