Following the postponement of general elections in Nigeria to 28 March and 11 April, the Secretary-General strongly urges the Government and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to ensure these new dates are maintained, in accordance with the provisions of the Nigerian Constitution. Also on Nigeria, the Special Representative for Global Education, Gordon Brown, is urging Boko Haram to free the girls who were taken from Chibok last April, after the group released yesterday 158 women and children taken during a separate raid on Katarka, in December. On Syria, the Secretary-General appeals to all parties to de-escalate the conflict in order to provide a reprieve for the long-suffering civilians of Syria. An immediate de-escalation is a much needed step towards a political solution to the conflict. Also on Syria, the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria has released its latest report, in which it says that unthinkable crimes continue to occur daily in Syria, with victims’ voices in danger of being lost amid the horrors of a conflict now approaching its fifth year. On the Secretary-General’s phone call to the Foreign Minister of Ukraine, Pavlo Klimkin, the SG commended the leadership displayed by President Poroshenko in efforts to find a peaceful resolution to the ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine. Also from Ukraine, the Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights says that while the 15 February ceasefire has led to a decrease in hostilities in many parts of the conflict zone in eastern Ukraine, it remains deeply concerned about the fate of civilians, as well as captured or wounded Ukrainian servicemen in the Debaltseve area. The Secretary-General will travel for an official visit to Asuncion, in Paraguay, on Tuesday, 24 February 24, before heading to Santiago de Chile on 27 February. From the UN Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), a statement issued today strongly deplored the terrorist bombings in the city of Al-Qubbah in eastern Libya, causing many casualties. On Mali, the UN Mission says it has taken note of the declaration signed yesterday by the parties to the inter-Malian inclusive dialogue announcing an immediate cessation of hostilities. Also on Mali, a team of independent experts appointed by the Secretary-General to look into the events surrounding the 27 January violent demonstration in Gao has arrived in Bamako and started its work today. From Somalia, the Special Representative in the country, Nicholas Kay, has condemned, in the strongest terms, today’s attack on the Central Hotel in Mogadishu that resulted in the death and injury of dozens of people, including senior members of the Federal Government of Somalia. Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the attack. From Geneva, the Office for the High Commissioner for Human Rights today strongly condemned the racist behaviour of a group of Chelsea football fans during the build-up to a Champions League game that was taking place in Paris on Tuesday.
