#NigeriaDecides: Foreign observers express satisfaction at the peaceful process in Abuja
Foreign observers deployed to monitor elections in Abuja, the Nigerian capital, have expressed satisfaction with the process of accreditation and voting.
They also said the election is so far peaceful in Abuja and urged all stakeholders to ensure that the election is also peaceful in other parts of the country.
An Observer from Sierra-Leone, Madam Fatima Sawani, who spoke with our correspondent on behalf of her counterparts from other countries at the Aso Drive polling unit in Abuja, however, observed that the voters needed to be educated more on voting and folding of the ballot papers.
She also expressed displeasure over low turnout of political parties’ agents at the polling units saying it was a bad omen for democracy.
“So far, the process is going on smoothly in Abuja and we want the election to be peaceful in other parts of the country as well.
“We are satisfied with the process so far, but my observation is that voters should be thought more on how to fold ballot papers,” she said.
