Election: US Commends Obi, Atiku For Choosing Legal Option

The United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Leonard, has noted that the February 25 presidential and National Assembly elections did not meet the expectations of Nigerians.

Leonard, who stated this in an op-ed titled “The Elections of February 25” on Sunday, however, commended the presidential candidates of the Labour Party and the Peoples Democratic Party, Peter Obi and Atiku Abubakar, respectively, for choosing to challenge the election results in court, rather than resorting to violence.

The Independent National Electoral Commission declared the candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, as the winner of the poll, to the dissatisaction of Obi and Atiku.

The US ambassador noted that the February 25 poll resulted in mixed feeling and  urged INEC to resolve the issues experienced ahead of the March 11 governorship and state Houses of Assembly elections.

She also commended Nigerians for demonstrating their dedication to democracy, asking INEC to share with the Nigerian public information about the actions it is taking.
