The United States has said it was disappointed by the quality of the 2019 elections, citing the low voter turnout, and reports of voter intimidation, vote buying, interference by security forces, and violence in some locations.

It admonished all stakeholders to work towards a free, fair, credible, transparent, and peaceful process, especially for those who would participate in Saturday’s supplementary polls across many states.

The US Embassy in a statement in Abuja on Thursday, congratulated Nigerians’ commitment to the democratic process, noting that it would continue to follow closely the ongoing polls.

The Mission expressed support for a democratic process “where the will of the Nigerian people is reflected in the results.”
