US Stations Marines In Ghana In Fear Of Post Election Crisis - The Nation by citizenisb: 1:09pm On Mar 27, 2015
The United States is preparing for a likely crisis in Nigeria after Saturday’s elections.

United States Secretary of State John Kerry has visited Nigeria, preaching peace, ahead of the elections. Vice President Joe Biden has spoken on the need for violence-free elections.

And President Barack Obama has urged Nigerians to keep this country united – whatever the outcome of the elections.
But the United States seems to have gone a step further by sending hundreds of marines to neighbouring Ghana.

An Aviation source in Accra, the Ghanaian capital, told The Nation that two Hercules C-130 transport planes landed at the Kotoka Airport last week, bearing “at leat three helicopters”.

“There are well over 200 marines,” the source, who pleaded not to be named because of what he described as the sensitivity of the matter, said.
“They are camped at the airport,” he added.

The helicopters are belived to be meant for the quick evacuation of Americans in Nigeria - in the event of violence.
It was not immediately clear yesterday where the marines and equipment may have been moved from. The United States has military bases in Europe.

The source also said two United States Navy ships had been sighted off the coast of Takoradi, Ghana.
A Ghana Defence source said one of the ships is equipped with medical facilities.

“More marines are expected,” he said, also pleading not to be named because, according to him, he is not allowed to talk to the media.
“It is not unusual for the United States or any other country to do this because they have to protect their people,” the source said.

Ghanaians have noticed the presence of the marines. The popular thinking is that they are in the country to train the military.
“Their mission is to move into Nigeria swiftly, should there be any need to do so,” the source said.

President Goodluck Jonathan, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), his main challenger, All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, have signed a peace accord in Abuja, pledging to maintain peace before, during and after the elections.

The United States is said to have had an intelligence report that the election could turn bloody, if the result does not favour the ruling party.
Leaders of the PDP and the APC are belived to be willing to accept the result, but “there are fears that should the polls be rigged, the citizenry may reject the results,” a source said.

If they couldn't move in to Nigeria for Chibok girls why would they move in for just post election violence?

See how Americans value their citizens. Nigeria is the opposite when we have a "I don't give a damn" president.

If America is expecting violence, that means they expect APC to lose and resort to violence.

Shut up you ignorant dunce. Nigeria sent planes to evacuate her citizens from Egypt, Libya, etc during the Arab spring. Next time conduct basic research before opening your rotten, anti-Nigerian lips here, ok? Dumbass white worshiper.

Good news,that means APC will lose. And GEJ will crush any opposing dissenters therefore it is expedient for the US to protect their citizens from the backlash..

[b][size=15pt]Our enemies (and that includes our ruling government). Are planning to break up Nigeria before a competent government can come in and allow Nigeria fulfill her potential.

America and European allies now has Nigeria surrounded through fake war against fake jihadist using our border neighbours Chad, Cameroon and Niger in the North and East, Now. They ready to use Ghana to open up a front in the West and South.

Probably to start a fake insurgency from the Niger Delta.

Please my people these people are going to try to start a bloodbath in Nigeria just so that they can prevent a competent government that may stop them continuing to rob us blind.

Please, please start taking steps to protect your families and yourselves and do not get drawn into any retaliatory sectarian violence.

Remain calm and peaceful and take steps to enhance security of your family or community and have a plan to defend yourselves.

The signs are ominous. These elections maybe being viewed by our American enemies as the perfect opportunity to ignite a war that they hope will give the UN the excuse to disintegrate Nigeria.

May the gods of our noble ancestors protect and help us gain a great victory over these enemies.[/size][/b]

Election supposed not to be a do or die affairs in a sane nation, but when some see it as a mean of taking away their sources of livelihood due to corruption, they decide to make or mar it. I hope GEJ realize that the whole of the world is watching him. If he fails to do the needful, the fate of Gbagbo is waiting cos this very votes must count.
