The UN, African Union, AU, and ECOWAS have urged political parties to exercise restraint as the Independent National Electoral Commission announces the results of the presidential and National Assembly elections.

In a statement by the international bodies made available on Tuesday by the ECOWAS Commission, they also urged candidates to continue to exercise patience for the complete results.

“The attention of the ECOWAS, AU and the UN has been drawn to the rejection of the results of the presidential election of Feb.23, 2019 by one of the participating political parties, even as they are still in the process of being released.
