Ghana has presented 100,000 units of election thumbprints pads to the Republic of Niger to support its second round of Presidential elections scheduled for Sunday, February 21.
The local media report that Mr Jonathan R. Magnusen, Ghana’s Ambassador to Niger, handed over the materials to the Niger Independent National Electoral Commission (CENI) at a short ceremony in Niamey this week.
In a press statement, Mr Magnusen said Ghana was satisfied with the democratic path embraced by the people of Niger, which resulted in the elections of December 2020, hailed by stakeholders as generally free, fair and credible.
He said the high turnout at the elections, particularly the participation of women, was a demonstration of the will of the people of Niger to reinforce and consolidate democracy, good governance, stronger democratic institutions and respect for human rights, justice and rule of law.
