Kenyan Former President His Excellency Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta has advised Nigerians to wait for the results of their recently completed general election with calm and patience.
Uhuru and H.E. (Rtd) Bai Koroma, the head of the ECOWAS mission, gave a joint press conference on Monday where they gave a preliminary assessment of the just-completed elections.
The two former heads of state claim that the preliminary remarks accurately represent the conclusions and suggestions made to key participants in the electoral process by the missions.
The missions will present a thorough report with suggestions for future elections following the election.
Notwithstanding some vandalized polling places and lengthy delays, the voting was mainly orderly. In many places, voters stayed up late to watch the count and "guard" the ballots.
On Saturday, nearly 90 million Nigerians had the opportunity to choose President Muhammadu Buhari's replacement. Many of them hoped that a new leader would do a better job addressing insecurity, economic malaise, and growing poverty.
