The elections for Governors and local Assemblies on 11 April brought to an end the Nigerian electoral process. This process has been transparent, credible and largely peaceful which has been a credit to those involved and a historic moment for Nigerian and African democracy.
The EU, which deployed an Election Observation Mission to Nigeria, again congratulates all who participated and who worked hard to make the elections successful and to prevent violence.
The EU looks forward to a smooth transition and encourages those elected to govern in the interests of all Nigerian citizens.
