March 30, 2015 – 2015 Nigerian Presidential Election Results: US & UK Warn INEC Against Manipulation

US Secretary of State John Kerry and his British counterpart Philip Hammond today warned against possible manipulation of Nigeria’s vote count at the collation center in Abuja.

“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,” the two diplomats said in a joint statement.

Kerry and Hammond warned that any attempt at fraud “would contravene the letter and spirit of the Abuja accord, to which both major parties committed themselves.”

They added that their governments “would be very concerned by any attempts to undermine the independence” of the electoral commission.
