With less than a week to the February 16th Presidential and National Assembly polls, the Federal Government has told the United States (US) not to cross the line as far as the elections are concerned.
The government specifically communicated to the US to be careful not to cross the line between observing and supporting the electoral process and appearing to be partisan and interfering in the process.
Minister of Foreign Affairs Geoffrey Onyeama gave the government’s position during a closed-door meeting with the Senior Director for Africa and Special Assistant to the United States’ President, Cyril Sartor, on the sidelines of the 32nd Ordinary Session of the Assembly of the Heads of State and Government of the African Union in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
Onyeama said he had reassured the US that President Buhari is determined that Nigeria has good, free and fair elections.
