2023 Off-Cycle Elections #VoteinPeace
I want to warmly thank General Abdulsalami Abubakar and the National Peace Committee for their kind invitation to the Kofi Annan Foundation to be here for this historic occasion. My thanks go as well to Switzerland a close partner of the Foundation in our efforts to promote electoral integrity around the world. But above all, I want to congratulate the candidates and parties on their reaffirmation of the peace accord. Your commitment puts country before party.
In close collaboration with the National Peace Committee, ECOWAS and Africa Union, the UN has assured Nigeria authorities it's full support in organizing general elections that are peaceful, credible, inclusive and transparent. In this regard, I will like to make a ferverent appeal for every stakeholders to support the efforts of INEC and other relevant institutions to ensure the election of these states meet the aspirations of all residents of this great state. It is important for us to collectively promote social cohesion and ensure that disagreement between communities are not instrumentalized during the elections to forment violence which in most instances leads to significant loss of lives and properties.
