The United Nation resident and humanitarian coordinator and representative of the UN Secretary-General in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, has commended Nigerians for their maturity and commitment to the unity and peaceful co-existence of all, in a constitutional democracy.

These included the 2019 General elections which, though far from not perfect, showed that Nigerians had chosen the path of Constitutionalism and legal channels in resolving political differences. “With all the legal challenges to the elections now resolved, the governments, both at the federal and state levels can now focus on delivering on the mandates freely given to them by the people”, said Mr. Kallon.
