Independent Foreign Observers Mission in Nigeria has released a preliminary report about the just concluded Presidential and National Assembly elections in Nigeria
Nigerians went into the polls on Saturday, 25th February, to elect their President and Members of the 10th National Assembly.
The results of the elections which were held across the country are being collated by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) officials in Abuja.
Rising from its meeting in Abuja on Tuesday, the foreign Observers, drawn from several countries in Europe and America with a common goal of monitoring the presidential election in Nigeria, described Saturday’s poll as “peaceful” and “transparent”.
It stressed that INEC deployed both sensitive and non-sensitive materials to voting points on time, even though the report recorded some delays in some areas, which it said did not deter voters from performing their civic duties.
