Former Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama is heading the West African Elders Forum (WAEF) in Nigeria to ensure a peaceful outcome to the country’s elections on Saturday, February 25. The federal government invited the former West African leaders to witness the polls, and they are impressed with the commitment of all 18 candidates to ensure violence-free elections. Mahama stated that the success and progress of Nigeria’s election will go a long way in stabilizing democracy, promoting good governance, and maintaining peace in the sub-region.

The WAEF deployed a three-man delegation to Nigeria last December for a pre-election mediation mission. During the mission, the delegation met with key stakeholders, including President Muhammadu Buhari, INEC Chair Prof Mahmood Yakubu, and presidential candidates. Meetings were also held with former Nigeria Head of State General Abdulsalami Abubakar and other former leaders to ensure peaceful polls.

Mahama assured everyone that members of the WAEF would observe election day procedures and results collation processes at a few polling stations in Abuja. Some members would stay in Nigeria after the elections to engage with key stakeholders towards peaceful outcomes.

Overall, the WAEF aims to promote peace, democracy, and good governance in the sub-region by ensuring peaceful elections in Nigeria.
