Catriona Liang Speaks On Nigeria’s 2023 Elections

 

Catriona Liang, the British high commissioner to Nigeria, has stated that the conduct and outcome of Nigeria’s general election in 2023 are critical for African democracies.

 

Touchaheart Nigeria reports that Liang claimed that Nigeria is being observed by the rest of the world as it prepares for the 2023 election at The Convergence 3.0, an event hosted by Yiaga, a civil society initiative, to empower and prepare young candidates ahead of elections in Nigeria.

 

The world will be looking to see if the election will be generally secure and well-run, according to the British high commissioner.

 

Liang said;

 

“For Nigeria, Africa and the world, the outcome and the conduct of the 2023 elections is important.

“You all know in your region where actually democracy is backsliding, this includes the West Africa basically. But then many states around Africa where presidents tried to hang on to power for third term.

“One really positive thing about Nigeria is the state of its democracy since 1999, though it’s been a little bit of a murky road, you are stuck with it.

“One of your previous presidents tried to go for a third term; there is no third term, one of your presidents is going to step down, so there will be a change in the next election.

“The world would be looking at this election; will it be relatively secure, will it be conducted relatively well, and will the outcome be the one the people of the country believe in?”
