ECOWAS Speaks on Presidential Polls Results

Madam Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, the ECOWAS Head of Election Observation Mission to Nigeria, has called on all candidates in the Presidential and National Assembly elections to accept the results “in good faith”.

The former Liberian President said this during a briefing on the mission’s preliminary declaration on the elections in Abuja on Sunday night.

Johnson-Sirleaf also said the elections were largely peaceful and transparent as voters were able to cast their votes freely, NAN reports.

She said “The mission commends the general public and the voters for their patience and determination to exercise their civic responsibility.

“Mission calls on the INEC and other stakeholders to approach the final phases of the process with fairness and transparency until the announcement of the final results.

“The mission appeals to party leaders, candidates, their supporters and the press to show tolerance and restraint leading up to, and after the announcement of the results.

“In the spirit of the commitment made in the Peace Accord of 13 February, the mission urges the candidates to accept the verdict of the polls in good faith, and in case of complaints, to seek redress by legal means solely.”
