APC Writes President Biden, Tells US Govt To Ignore Election Petition

The United States chapter of the All Progressives Congress on Monday wrote the President of the United States, Joe Biden, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Kelvin McCarthy, to ignore a petition written by some aggrieved Nigerians allegedly discrediting the 2023 presidential election.

The request is coming three days after authorities in the US administration granted permission to some diasporans in the country to use its park on April 3 to protest the outcome of the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.

The Chairman of the United States chapter of the APC, Prof. Tai Balofin, stated that the sovereignty of Nigeria since independence had been working.

The statement read, “We are writing to you regarding a recent petition that has been submitted, calling for the discrediting of the Nigerian presidential election that was deemed free and fair by the Independent National Electoral Commission. As the leader of a country that upholds democratic values, we implore you to disregard the petition.

“The government has faced many challenges threatening the relationship between tribes coloured by religion and politics.

“They have been calling for actions that go against the laid-down processes for addressing disputes and grievances, which is a subversion of the constitution. Their actions and utterances are not only seditious but also pose a threat to the peace and stability of Nigeria. As such, we urge you to condemn such action and make it clear that the British government stands firmly in support of the democratic process in Nigeria.

“Conclusively, we are available to present more evidence to the US Congress. Thank you for your attention to this matter,” he added.
