The former President of Liberia, Professor Amos Sawyer has reacted to the Federal Government’s statement on International communities interference in the affairs of the country.
Sawyer said Nigerians must not see the presence of world leaders in the country as an intrusion.
The Professor stated this yesterday at a one-day conference organised by former President Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, in Abuja.
Speaking at the conference, which has “Peaceful elections and national development,” as its theme, Sawyer who was a special guest of honour said elections in Africa’s most populous nation meant a lot to the West African sub region.
Meanwhile it was earlier reported that the government said it would not condone unfair interference in matters that are wholly internal.
In the same vein, the governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai has warned foreign powers against undue interference in Nigeria’s political affairs following the statements they all issued after President Muhammadu Buhari suspended Walter Onnoghen as Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN).
El-Rufai said “foreign powers” who may have been engaged by some politicians to interfere with the Nigerian general elections should jettison the idea because, “they would go back in body bags.”
The Governor made the statement while speaking during an NTA Live programme on Tuesday evening.
