Statement of the MFA on the Presidential Elections in the Federal Republic of Nigeria

The Czech Republic commends the peaceful conduct and democratic character of the Presidential Elections in Nigeria on 28 and 29 March 2015.

For the first time in the history of Nigeria, the Presidential Elections were won by the opposition candidate. In this context, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Czech Republic highly appreciates the constructive approach of President Goodluck Jonathan, who accepted his election defeat gracefully and called on the citizens of his country to remain calm and respect the election results. Nigeria has thus confirmed the maturity of its democratic system and becoming an example worth following.

The Czech Republic considers Nigeria its important partner in Sub-Saharan Africa and stands ready to further develop its traditionally friendly relations and support the democratic path of Nigeria to stability, security and prosperity.
