Election Delay 'Not a Conspiracy' - Calls for Peace in Nigeria
Former Botswana president Festus Mogae arrived in Abuja, Nigeria, last week as the co-leader of the joint international election observation mission by the International Republican Institute (IRI) and the National Democratic Institute (NDI). Elections had originally been planned for Saturday, February 16. But hours before Nigerians were due to go to the polls, the country's electoral commission, INEC, announced the postponement of voting. The recipient of the 2008 Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership was on the line from Abuja to allAfrica's managing editor Juanita Williams in Cape Town.
