The Consul General of the Niger Republic in Nigeria, Hajiya Rabi Abdou-Dodo, has commended the Nigerian government for its support toward the success of her country’s presidential election.

She made the commendation while addressing newsmen at the consulate in Kano on Sunday.

The consul general specifically lauded the Federal Government for providing adequate security personnel at election centres.

“We felt it necessary to thank the Nigerian government for the support it had given us since the first round of the election held last month,’’ she said.

She also thanked the Kano State Government for the support it had given to the consulate in ensuring that the exercise was hitch-free.

The consul general further expressed satisfaction with the large turnout of voters, particularly women, who came to exercise their civic rights.

Abdou-Dodo advised opposition parties to accept the outcome of the election so as to move the country forward.

“We have to use this opportunity to call on the opposition to accept the outcome of the election in good faith so as to move the state forward “, she said.

She attributed the success recorded in the election to an enlightenment tour of 19 northern states she carried out before the poll.

Abdou-Dodo, however, urged citizens of that country living in Nigeria to continue to exhibit high sense of responsibility and ensure peaceful coexistence in their respective host communities.

NAN reports that as at the time of filing this report, the election was going on peacefully in Kano centre.
