The US and UK government have released a joint statement appraising last Saturday's general elections. According to the statement posted on UK's Foreign affairs website here, both government said the elections have largely been peaceful but that there are disturbing indications of political interference in the collation of results. The statement below...
Our governments welcome the largely peaceful vote on 28 March. The Nigerian people have shown a commendable determination to register their vote and choose their leaders. So far, we have seen no evidence of systemic manipulation of the process. But there are disturbing indications that the collation process - where the votes are finally counted - may be subject to deliberate political interference.
This would contravene the letter and spirit of the Abuja Accord, to which both major parties committed themselves. The Governments of the United States and the United Kingdom would be very concerned by any attempts to undermine the independence of the Electoral Commission (INEC), or its Chairman, Prof Jega; or in any way distort the expressed will of the Nigerian people.

US and UK should not interfere with our political process. We are capable of taking our destiny in our own hands. They are only interested in our oil and not our welfare.

This is what happens when a "child is old in age but young brain wise". UK and US know Nigeria is just old like a 1960 calendar but with little maturity. There is no way troubles in Nigeria will not affect both countries; hence their crying out loud.

@ericwilly212  Prof Jega have done a wonderful work to organise a peaceful and credible election though there some hitches  in some few areas,  yet US and UK are bent to use a stealth method to instigate violence.  Let's remember that they disagree to sell us weapons to fight a common  enemy - terrorists. Why are they so interested  in our election because they didn't show such interest in our lives and security. Supposing  Boko Haram  kill us all as they refused to sell us weapons, should they be here talking about election? Let them go and sit down...US rigged 2000 election in favour of George  W. Bush against Al Gore. You have Spoken my mind so they know corruption and shell instigated two brothers against themselves and busy draining oil? US think we have forgotten how Chevron sponsor ship load of arms to one tribe name withheld in Delta state to kill the other tribe two brothers 2007? The case of oil spillage that was taken to Netherlands court why how did it go 2012? They want to insight trouble now make them come suck oil thru back door we no go fight make them mind their own business. make them first clear the case of Tax dodgers in HSBC bank in London involving a member of their house Lords that they turn a blind eyes to first before them interfere in other people matters that is why i love what Russia is doing to them. pigs

AM VERY PROUD OF MY COUNTRY TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE STILL SO MANY PEOPLE IN THE COUNTRY WHO HAVE REALIZED THAT NEITHER AMERICA OR UK IS OUR FRIENDS, THEY GOT ONE INTEREST AND THAT IS THE INTEREST OF THEIR OWN  COUNTRY. NIGERIA IS A GREAT NATION AND AS SMALL AS WE MIGHT SEE IT COMPARED TO UK AND AMERICA, WE ARE TREAT TO THEM FROM ALL INDICATION. WE ARE INDEPENDENT SO WE DONT NEED NO WESTERN NATION
