The United States has again reacted to Nigeria’s forthcoming elections. Mr. Michael Pompeo, the United States secretary of state, Saturday said that those who interfere or incite violence in Nigeria’s election would be held accountable.

The general election is barely 6 days, but accusations and counter-accusations have taken spaces provided for all the parties to present their manifestos, plans and likely administrative modus operandi.

Recall that the governor of Kaduna state, Malam Nasir El-rufai said in a national television, NTA that any foreigner who interferes in Nigeria’s electoral process would leave in body bags.

A statement which many Nigerians and opposition Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, faulted and demand an apology.

In view of his statement, U.S through its secretary of state, issued a statement, warning those who would like to instigate violence and interfere in the forthcoming elections to desist from their plots, noting that anybody who interferes must be held accountable.

“The United States government supports a free, fair, transparent, and peaceful election that reflects the will of the Nigerian people.

“It is critical that the Independent National Electoral Commission operates free from outside pressure and intimidation and in a totally objective manner.

“Nigerian security services must provide a safe and secure environment for the Nigerian people to exercise their rights. Those who interfere in the electoral process or incite violence must be held to account.

“The upcoming elections are an opportunity for Nigeria to solidify its place as a democratic leader in Africa.”

This statement comes at a very critical time for upcoming elections, when irresponsible Nigerian politicians are already speaking of "body bags".
Nigeria needs RELIABLE friends like the United States to navigate and sustain early democratic developments and culture.
Very much welcome!

It is hard for any developing country to survive without the assistance of USA. Buhari turned his back on the US Government, Nigerians have to vote for someone who will make USA an ally.

A lot is riding on the outcome of the coming elections. That's why we can't afford to get it wrong.

A whole lot!
