Mr. Mahama was impressed by the confidence that all the candidates and parties have in the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) of Nigeria while visiting the country as part of a pre-election tour organized by the West African Elders Forum (WAEF).

He said that every political party in Nigeria has attested that INEC had heard and taken into account their concerns.
He regretted that the Ghanaian Electoral Commission cannot be held responsible for the same (EC). He claims that the EC was formerly one of the world’s leading organizations for overseeing elections.

He stated, “I can’t say the same for my Electoral Commission (EC), which was once among the best agencies in the world for managing elections.
Mr. Mahama lamented the NDC’s treatment at the hands of the “EC and her other Commissioners,” calling it “hostility,” and expressed the wish that the EC could instill the same level of trust in all parties as the INEC.
But according to the former president, the EC rejected all of the National Peace Council’s efforts to set up a meeting between the Commission and the two main political parties, the NDC and the NPP. As a result, the former president believes that his wish would remain unfulfilled.

We have an EC that has brazenly rejected all efforts by the National Peace Council to convene a meeting between the Commission and the two major political parties, the NDC and NPP, so regrettably I am not confident that this will occur, he said.
The West African Elders Forum (WAEF), led by former president John Dramani Mahama, is tasked with ensuring a peaceful election as Nigeria prepares to pick a new leader.

Forum leaders from the sub-region, including Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, the former president of Nigeria, Boni Yayi, the former president of Benin, Fatoumata Tambajang, the former vice president of the Gambia, Kadre Ouedraogo, the former prime minister of Burkina Faso and president of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), and Dr. Erastus Mwencha, the former deputy chair of the African Union, make up the Forum (AU).
