Former Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan is heading a West African delegation known as the West African Elders Forum (WAEF) to oversee Liberia’s upcoming election scheduled for October 10. The Goodluck Jonathan Foundation’s spokesperson, Wealth Ominabo, announced this on Sunday, stating that Jonathan and the delegation departed Nigeria for Monrovia, Liberia’s capital, on Saturday.
The mission comprises prominent figures, including former Burkina Faso Prime Minister and ex-president of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), Kadre Ouedraogo. Their primary objective is to observe the electoral process and support peaceful elections, drawing on their experience as former regional leaders to contribute to the consolidation of democracy in Liberia.
During their visit, the WAEF mission will engage with various stakeholders, including opposition leaders, electoral authorities, and security officials, including President George Weah, who is seeking re-election. The delegation is expected to stay in Liberia for approximately ten days, during which they will visit polling stations in Monrovia to witness Election Day procedures and the results collation process.
