EU Decries Non-Implementation Of 2011 Elections Report

Santiago_AyxelaThe Chief Observer of the European Union (EU), Mr Santiago Ayxela, has decried the non-implementation of the recommendations the EU monitors made to the Federal Government after the 2011 elections.

He said that his team made as many as 50 recommendations to the Federal Government but only a few, including the Freedom of Information Law, saw the light of the day.

“We have made recommendations that the Nigerian parliament didn’t implement”, he said.

He added that Nigeria “is one of the most important countries in Africa and so everything that happens in Nigeria is important for the region, Europe and the whole world.”

He maintained that Nigeria cannot be ignored by the EU, regardless of the inability of the Federal Government to put its recommendations into action.
