These Election Reports are the observations, conclusions and recommendations of Commonwealth Observer Groups. The SecretaryGeneral constitutes these observer missions at the request of governments and with the agreement of all significant political parties. At the end of a mission, a report is submitted to the SecretaryGeneral, who makes it available to the government of the country in question, the political parties concerned and to all Commonwealth governments. The report eventually becomes a public document.

Conclusions and Recommendations

The Commonwealth Observer Group considers itself especially privileged to have been present to witness an important turning point in Nigeria’s history – the conduct of elections which constitute a key stage in the peaceful transition from military rule to civilian government through democratic elections. We believe we have faithfully carried out the mandate entrusted to us by the Commonwealth Secretary-General to observe relevant aspects of the organisation and conduct of the National Assembly and Presidential elections in accordance with the laws of Nigeria and to act impartially and independently in forming a judgment on the credibility of the electoral process as a whole.
