The leader of the ECOWAS election monitoring and observation team, former President John Agyekum Kufuor would arrive in Nigeria on Wednesday to oversee the conduct of Saturday’s presidential elections in that country.

Mr Kufuor and his team would stay until the end of the elections, monitoring what happens before, during and after the polls.

President John Dramani Mahama, who is the chairman of ECOWAS made this known at a media briefing in Abuja last Monday after meeting the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport in Abuja.

Mr Mahama, was on a one-day pre-election visit to Nigeria as the chair of Authority of Head of States of ECOWAS, to solidarize with the people on the upcoming elections and especially get the political leaders and other stakeholders to make the elections free fair and credible.

Early on Monday, Mr Mahama met with President Goodluck Jonathan and the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Attahiru Jega, "and we discussed all issues that has to do with the coming election and I had firm assurances that everything is set to go and on March 28."
