During the meeting, the leader of the UNEAD delegation, Serge Kubwimana said, “We are in Nigeria as a result of a request for electoral support for the UN to assess the overall context in which the election will take place and see in what form we could potentially bring our small contribution to the 2023 elections.

“We have conferred with the APC National Secretary on behalf of the National Chairman and we have done the same with other stakeholders such as INEC, government, civil society organisations, other major political parties, faith-based organisations, and inter-party advisory council to name a few.

“In a nutshell, we are here to express our intent to contribute to a peaceful and inclusive process next year and to see where we can be of value. The country has strong institutions and the ability to run its elections. There are issues of course, but Nigeria is not the only place where you see issues around elections. So our role again here is to see how we can support one of our member states,” he stated.

The delegation was accompanied by the APC National Publicity Secretary, Barr. Felix Morka, Director of Organisation, Prof. Ussiju Medaner and other members of the party.
