An EU realease today states that the EU presidency has noted with concern reports of irregularities and
of the use of violence in some regions of Nigeria during the
presidential and parliamentary elections yesterday (Saturday).

These incidents have given rise to concerns that not all Nigerians
entitled to vote really were able to do so freely and without fear.

The Presidency will carefully examine the final report of the EU
election observers as well as of the EU Embassies. The Presidency
calls upon the Nigerian Government to ensure that there are no
doubts about the credibility of the election results.
