The United States is deeply disappointed by the decision to postpone Nigeria’s presidential election, which had been scheduled for February 14, says John Kerry, U.S Secretary of State.

In a statement issued from Washington D.C, Kerry said Political interference with the Independent National Electoral Commission is unacceptable, and it is critical that the government not use security concerns as a pretext for impeding the democratic process.

“The international community will be watching closely as the Nigerian government prepares for elections on the newly scheduled dates. The United States underscores the importance of ensuring that there are no further delays. Statement reads.

He added, “As I reaffirmed when I visited Lagos last month, we support a free, transparent, and credible electoral process in Nigeria and renew our calls on all candidates, their supporters, and Nigerian citizens to maintain calm and reject election-related violence.”
