President Goodluck Jonathan recently issued a statement in Paris where he said that he would work with INEC to ensure that Nigerians living abroad vote in the 2015 elections.
According to him:
“During my visit to France a year and a half ago, we promised to make every Nigerian proud of a credible transition and we are glad to have accomplished that.
“We will do better in 2015. Discussions are on to ensure that Nigerians living abroad can participate in the next elections if not in everything then at least the presidential and gubernatorial elections.
“We do not want to meddle because INEC is an independent body, but we will work with INEC to see how this can be achieved.’’
