We’re not supporting Atiku, US ambassador replies Keyamo

The US embassy in Nigeria tweeted on its tweeter handle advise Nigerians.

“On this level playing field, finding your path forward together is the heart of democracy. It is the heart of freedom and the hope for free enterprise and free people.” #NigeriaDecides2019

This come after the APC Presidential campaign spokesman Mr festus keyamo SAN accuses the US of supporting the main opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar of the PDP.

The US has come out to say it’s not supporting any candidate in the fourth coming elections in Nigeria.

We could recall that the APC while in opposition in 2014/2015 has called on the international community to put pressure on the then government to make sure elections were free and fair.

It is surprising now that they see every advice from the western powers as an intervention in the political process of the country. The same APC justified the visit of government officials from chad to their election campaign in Kano state as friendly visit.

Governor of kaduna state made a statement on national tv warning all foreigners coming to intervene in Nigeria, that they will go back in body bags. The FG has come out to back his statement saying it’s a patriotic call in defence of national sovereignty.
