The United States says it is compiling reports on the 2019 general elections with a view to giving a proper response on it. The US said it was actively involved with political happenings in the country, particularly regarding the 2019 election. The US Assistant Secretary of State, Bureau of African Affairs, Tibor Nagy, said this in a telephone press conference on Tuesday. Nagy said during the build-up to the elections, the US Ambassador, Stuart Symington, and his team took many steps to ensure that things went smoothly. The US official said in the pre-election period, in the election period and currently in the post- election period, they are providing phenomenal guidance to Washington on how the US Government should and should not respond to the election-related matters. He said, “So, just rest assured that the United States of America Embassy and the Consulate in Lagos, are actively involved and are doing an absolutely superb job to monitor events and to provide guides on how Washington should react to whatever the events there are. “As you know, our secretary did make a telephone call.” Prior to the Presidential and National Assembly election, the United States Secretary of State, Michael Pompeo, was reported to have placed a call across to the Presidential Candidate of the Peoples Democratic, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, for a free, fair and credible election in the country while President Donald Trump called Buhari. The US had threatened to place a visa ban on persons involved in electoral violence.

    Let their physicians heal themselves. Let them leave Nigeria alone. They now know that the promised sales of NNPC by their preferred candidate – Atiku is now botched and so wants to sew seeds of discord into our polity. Please advise them to mind their business and leave us to our fate.
