PHOTOS: Atiku meets US State department officials

The presidential candidate of the People’s Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, met with officials of the US State Department officials.

Stating in his twitter handle, Atiku said the US would announce sanctions for electoral malpractices ahead of Nigeria’s election.

Atiku said, “Yesterday, at the meeting at the State Department led by Molly Phee, Assistant Secretary—Bureau of African Affairs, the focus of our discussions were on the critical need to seek collaborative solutions to our local issues on democracy and governance, our deteriorating security and the economy.

“Most importantly, we secured commitments to support for free and fair elections in Nigeria, an announcement of a sanction policy before the elections to deter anti-democratic forces and commitments for continued partnership with Nigeria in areas of security and development.”
