 2019: US Appeals to Politicians, Supporters to Shun Violence, Hate, Inciteful Speeches



As campaigns for the 2019 general election officially commenced Sunday nationwide, the United States of America has appealed to politicians, their supporters and all Nigerians to shun violence and avoid making hate and inciteful speeches.

The US, which made the appeal in a statement from its embassy in Abuja, also called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security operatives to conduct themselves in the most professional way and remain neutral before, during and after the elections, noting that whoever wins the election must be the true reflection of the people’s choice.

The statement read: “As friends of Nigeria and its people, we will follow the campaigns and election process closely. Who wins the elections is for the Nigerian people to decide. Our concern is to see a process leading to free, fair, transparent and peaceful elections.

“We hope to see transparent campaigns and we urge all voters to use their democratic right and vote. We are particularly keen to see greater participation of women, youth and people living with disabilities.

“We urge all involved – political and non-political actors – to refrain from using hate speech and take a firm stance against violence. The 2015 Peace Accords played an important role in that regard and we welcome new efforts towards that end.”
