US Secretary of State Pompeo phones Atiku, what they discussed


The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar, on Friday disclosed that he has had a telephone conversation with the United States Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, over Saturday’s election and to affirm the international community’s commitment to free, fair and credible elections in Nigeria.

This came barely 48 hours after the former President of the United States, Bill Clinton, called the Nigerian President and candidate of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Muhammadu Buhari, on phone to wish Nigeria and Nigerians well ahead of tomorrow’s general elections.

The former vice-president said the American most senior diplomat called him to reiterate the support of the international community as Nigeria prepares for a presidential election on Saturday.

“Earlier today I received a call from US Secretary of State, @SecPompeo, who reaffirmed the international community’s commitment to free and fair elections in Nigeria,” Abubakar said on Twitter, adding that he hopes Nigerians would have a peaceful exercise.
