Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has said the administration believes in the principle of free elections as a factor that will lead stability in Nigeria.

He made this known on Friday when he played host to a delegation of ECOWAS network of Electoral Commissioners led by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Professor Mahmood Yakubu.

The acting president said the right to freely elect leaders should not be only by word of mouth but should be adhered to in practice.

”We believe in the fundamental principles of free elections and we believe that the only way to ensure stability in the society is to ensure that people have the right to elect their leaderships, but not just a right on paper but a right in practice and the only way by which that right can be manifested in practice is by free and fair elections,” he said.
