Consul General of the United State to Nigeria, Ambassador John Bray, has disclosed that they have no preferential candidate in the forthcoming presidential election.
In a statement issued on Thursday by the Special Adviser to the Governor of Bayelsa State on Media Relations, Mr. Fidelis Soriwei, he quoted the US Consul General stating the February 16 election should be done in a peaceful atmosphere devoid of violence.
“The US does not have a candidate in this election. We are looking for a free, fair, credible and peaceful process, a process that allows the choice of the Nigerian citizens to come through.
“So, we are going to spend some time with the governor and chat about different things we might be able to do to better the situation and anything we can do to help before leaving for Port Harcourt.”
