The New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) has urged United Nations agencies and other international stakeholders to help deepen Nigeria’s democracy.

The National Vice Chairman of the NNPP, Prince Onu Nwaeze, said this while receiving a team from the Office of Internal Oversight Services for the United Nations Secretariat at the party’s headquarters in Abuja.

He said, “The evaluation and observation of the democratic process is a very serious issue that requires every serious political to listen and suggest ways of deepening our democracy. Our democracy has shifted from being nascent to full-fledged democracy and sharing ideas from experiences United Nations agencies like yours have gathered from other developed countries will help developing nations like Nigeria to deepen our democracy.”

Leader of the three-member team, Yuen Ching Ho, said they were in the country as part of their oversight duty in West Africa and the Sahel on peace and security concerns.

“Our office has the responsibility of providing oversight for different UN programmes, activities and offices with the aim of serving accountability and lessons learned in the processes. So, our focus is on the work and the support of the UN and how well they have addressed the needs of the government in countries they work in,” she said.
