The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Nigeria has said that the crisis rocking the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) is capable of posing a big threat to the 2015 elections if not addressed by the stakeholders . The first secretary of The Netherland Embassy, Ms Anique Claessen, expressed the view in Abuja during a one-day participatory meeting on “Road Map to a Sustainable Electoral System in Nigeria’’. The meeting was organised by the Transition Monitoring Group (TMG) with support from the embassy.
Claessen said, “If a small group of 36 cannot agree on and respect the outcome of a democratic election, what are the prospects for elections involving millions?” She added that it was only when the electoral process was open, transparent and legitimate as well as void of corruption and rigging that the prospects for accepting the results could increase. – See more at:
