Ambassador Hussaini Haruna Coomassie and his colleague, Amb (Dr) Jonathan Emmamuzo Ojadah, were nominated as international observers, under International Peace Commission, an affiliation of the United Nations, who spoke to the press at Kenneth Kaunda International Airport, Lusaka Zambia earlier today, on their way back to Nigeria.
_”The Zambian electorates turned up massively, well behaved, highly composed citizens, they went to various polling units and casted their votes in an impressive manners, no snatching of ballot boxes which is the usual practice in Africa.”
Mr Lungu, the incumbent President polled 1,787,629.00, while the opposition leader Mr. Hakainde Hichilema polled 2,791,409.00 thereby defeated the incumbent President with a wide margin of about 1,003780. 00.
The maturity displayed by PRESIDENT LUNGU is highly commendable, he allowed the process to go on smoothly without intimidation or interruption by security operatives or political thugs, I think Nigeria and the rest of Africa have lots to learn from Zambia, he added.
In his remarks, Amb Jonathan Ojadah was overwhelmed with the way and manner the presidential election was peacefully conducted without any form of harassment, though there were 1 or 2 unavoidable incidences in some wards, but they were impressively controlled and elections continued peacefully afterwards, Dr Jonathan advised the incoming President to continue with the good works of President Lungu and make amendments of his lapses when necessary, with the look of things democracy has come to stay in Zambia, Amb Jonathan concluded.
