President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has said the Federal Government will put all machinery in motion to ensure that Nigerians in diaspora can vote during elections that follow the 2011 general elections. The President has also assured that more distinguished Nigerians in the diaspora will be considered subsequently for inclusion in the National Honours list.

He gave these assurances, Tuesday, while addressing members of the Nigerian Community in Gabon, at the residence of the Nigerian ambassador in Libreville. The President was in Gabon for the 50 th independence anniversary celebration of that country.

Responding to various questions and comments from Nigerians at the occasion, President Jonathan noted that while it may not be feasible for Nigerians in the diaspora to vote at the forthcoming 2011 polls, trends in modern technology like the electronic voting system have simplified the voting process and assured that Government will ensure they exercise their franchise in subsequent elections.
