Elections: UK Prime Minister Warns Jonathan
Ahead of Saturday’s polls, the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, David Cameron has written a letter to President Goodluck Jonathan.
In a statement made available to Vanguard, the Prime Minister warned Jonathan that failure to allow the March 28 elections go on as scheduled, ‘would risk national security and stability, and adversely affect Nigeria’s international reputation’.
According to Cameron, it is important for Nigeria’s elections to be successful not only for the country’s future but also because it will be a signal to the rest of Africa.
“Delivering a credible process will be a lasting credit to you as President and to Nigeria as a nation.
“With hundreds of lives lost after the last election, the eyes of the international community will be focused on Nigeria,” he said.
The Prime Minister commended Nigeria her and neighbouring countries for tackling the threat posed by the dreaded Islmaist sect, Boko Haram.
