A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has said the United States President, Joe Biden, will apply fair pressure on President Muhammadu Buhari to ensure free and fair elections in 2023.

Omokri stated this while giving highlights of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar’s visit to the US during an interview on Channels TV’s Politcs Today.

He said, “Atiku Abubakar’s visit to the United States was an invitation by United States government to have a briefing with him. He met with US Assitant Secretary of State. The meeting was hosted by the State Department, but there were several other people from different branches of the executive arm of the United States treasury, departments of justice, defence, etc.

“They talked about their plans and how they will  liaise with Nigeria. And they want to hear from him, like how he intends to handle Nigeria US relationship. One of the things he talked  about, he talked about the election and how to deliver free and fair elections.

“In the past, they (US) waited until after the election before they intervened, but this time around they are going to be watching for comments and actions that may lead to violence so that they would take action. So what is the action they are going to be taking? There is going to be fair pressure directly from President Biden on President Muhammadu Buahri to ensure the elections are free and fair.”
