Addressing State House correspondents after bilateral talks with President Jonathan yesterday, President Mills said free and transparent polls, where all contestants are accorded a level playing field, would send positive signals to the international community that Nigeria has come of age in her democratic experience.

While pledging his country’s support for credible elections in Nigeria, President Mills said Ghana “will do whatever it takes to ensure that the people of Nigeria are given the opportunity to choose their leaders”.

“This will send positive signals to the rest of the world that our big brother, Nigeria, is following the path which has been blazed by other countries,” he stated.
