The United State chapter of the All Progressives Congress has lauded the Council of State for insisting that the general elections will hold as scheduled this month.

The body said it closely followed Council of State meeting in Aso Rock, Abuja, Nigeria’s capital and was impressed with the decision to allow the presidential election hold as scheduled by the Independent National Electoral Commission. “We applaud the stakeholders prompt attendance, most importantly for making out time to resolve a national puzzle. The meeting is equal to that of the United Nations and means more to Nigerians,” the statement said.

The USA chapter of Nigeria’s main opposition party urged citizens to be resolute during the election. “Regardless of this outcome, we should not be overwhelmed, it could be another form of distraction, as the incumbent are busy working out foul play. From the information reaching our secretariat, they are mapping out new strategies, which includes unwillingness to provide adequate security, result manipulations, rigging and grafting and an interim government. This is not limited to announcement of false results and refusal to handover on May 29th.”

The Director General Diaspora/APC Buhari Campaign Organization-Prof Isa Odidi (Canada) thanked all Nigerians in Diaspora, stakeholders, social media and pro Buhari/Osibanjo groups, APC Canada, APC Europe, APC USA, APC Asia, APC South Africa, etc for echoing in one voice in support of change!

“The outcome of this meeting is made possible by all. We have a few days to decide the future of our beloved country-Nigeria and there is need for continuous campaigns and advocacy to request nothing less than; free and fair election, timely announcement of correct results, declaration of winner and handover on May 29,” the statement said.
