The United Nations has called on Nigerians to “firmly reject all undemocratic and negative voices that seek to promote conflict” and disrupt the general elections.

The UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for West Africa and the Sahel, Mohamed Ibn Chambas, made the call at the conclusion of a two-week pre-electoral mission to Nigeria.

The mission, which took place from Jan. 21 to Jan. 31, was the third pre-election mission to Nigeria by the Secretary-General’s envoy.
