West African Elders, led by Former President Mahama, will observe the Nigeria elections.

John Dramani Mahama urges church leaders to boldly speak truth to power and provide guidance to leaders in Ghana

The West African Elders Forum (WAEF), led by former President John Dramani Mahama, is currently in Nigeria on a mediation mission ahead of the country’s presidential election. The election, which is touted as the largest in Africa with a voter population of approximately 90 million, has attracted the attention of the WAEF, who are based in Abuja and are committed to ensuring that all stakeholders adhere to the rules of the election.

During a press briefing in Abuja, Mahama stated that the WAEF had been invited by the federal government to observe the polls and that all 18 candidates had demonstrated a commitment to a violence-free election. He also emphasized the importance of a peaceful outcome to the election in terms of promoting good governance, stabilizing democracy, and maintaining peace in the sub-region.

The WAEF had previously sent a three-man delegation to Nigeria in December 2022 to undertake a pre-election mediation mission, during which they met with various key stakeholders, including President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chairman of INEC, Prof Mahmood Yakubu. Mahama has also held meetings with former Nigeria Head of State, General Abdulsalami Abubakar, and other former leaders to ensure a peaceful election.

The WAEF will continue to engage with other key stakeholders in the lead up to the election, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, February 25, 2023.
