The group made this call in a joint statement signed by the European Union Delegation to Nigeria, France, Germany, United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, among others.
They reiterated their commitment to closely monitor the process leading to next year’s election.
They, however, warned all political actors to refrain from hate speeches and avoid anything that could heat up the polity.
