Speaking at an international conference with the theme ‘United States Policy and Nigeria’s National Decisions in the 2023 Elections’, held at Johns Hopkins University, United States, America’s Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Africa, Mr Michael Gonzales noted that the US government remains committed to working with Nigeria to uphold its conventions toward ensuring a peaceful power transition in 2023.
"We will continue to use our messaging, as well as other diplomatic channels at our disposal, including visa restrictions, where warranted, to dissuade those who may be tempted to use violence to undermine Nigeria’s democratic process,” Gonzales said"
