CNPP Congratulates Zambia’s President-Elect, Says Free, Fair and Credible Election Key to Development

The Conference of Nigeria Political Parties (CNPP) has congratulated the President-elect of Zambia Hakainde Hichilema on his presidential election victory.

The Zambia’s opposition leader was on Monday declared the winner of last week’s presidential election in the country, defeating the incumbent President Edgar Lungu by over a million votes.

CNPP in a statement issued in Abuja by its Secretary General, Chief Willy Ezugwu noted that “free, fair and credible election is a basic ingredient to national development”.

Urging Nigerians to emulate the Zambians, the CNPP noted that its about time Nigerians realised that Africa is waiting for Nigeria.

“Once we get elections right, it will rub off on all African countries as they are waiting for us to take the lead.

“As we look forward to the 2023 general elections, the CNPP therefore urge Nigerians to emulate the Zambians by coming out in their numbers to vote for candidates of their choice as voter apathy gives room for rigging of election outcomes”, the CNPP noted.
