Why Former US President Bill Clinton Is Visiting Buhari, Atiku by Ray97: 11:53pm On Feb 10
A former President of the United States of America, Bill Clinton, has been scheduled to meet with major contenders in Nigeria’s presidential candidates to negotiate a peace deal amidst political mudslinging and tension.

Clinton will meet President Muhammadu Buhari, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, and his main rival, Atiku Abubakar, of the People’s Democratic Party.

Facilitated by Kofi Annan Foundation, the meeting would come a day before the presidential election slated for February 16.

“As Nigeria heads towards presidential elections, every effort must be made to ensure that they take place in a peaceful atmosphere” Alan Doss, President of the Kofi Annan Foundation, said in a press statement on Friday.

“President Bill Clinton is well-known and respected in Nigeria and we are pleased that he agreed to make the trip in order to personally urge all the candidates and their parties to re-commit to the peace pledge they adopted last December,” Doss added.

Doss opined that Clinton’s presence will demonstrate “the importance of these elections not only for Nigeria but Africa as a whole”.

The campaigns have been characterised by intense mudslinging, threats of violence and outright lies.

Kaduna State governor Nasir El-Rufai, a key ally of President Buhari, during the week, threatened that any external actors who try to intervene in the elections and in the internal affairs of the country would return home in a body bags.

“We are waiting for the person who will come and intervene. They will go back in body bags because nobody will come to Nigeria and tell us how to run our country,” said El-Rufai.

“We have got that independence and we are trying to run our country as decently as possible,” he said.

Last year Buhari and Atiku both signed an agreement stating a commitment to hold a peaceful election.

Following El-Rufai’s comments, the main opposition PDP said it would be “left with no option than to consider a review of its signatory in the national peace accord” if the ruling party did not stop “comments, threats and incendiary actions”.

El-Rufai’s comment came after the US, the UK and EU expressed their concerns to the Nigerian authorities over the suspension of the chief justice Walter Onnoghen.

Buhari said Onnoghen was suspended for not declaring his assets when he was made the country’s top judge.

Buhari also said “the security agencies have since then traced other suspicious transactions running into millions of dollars to the CJN’s personal accounts, all undeclared or improperly declared as required by law.”

But his critics said the suspension was a pre-emptive move by the government with the hope of having a friendly judge at the helms of affairs should the presidential elections result is disputed.

Nigeria’s judiciary has helped resolve electoral disputes in past votes, some of which have been marred by violence and vote-rigging.

El rufai is simply a terrorist,the annoying part is that some fool$ still supports this terrorist organization called APC... imagine el-rufai threatening international observers meaning they have made up their minds to rig against all odds.

That's the interference that scares Hellrufai.

It has become impossible for Buhari to rig.

A president that has not addressed us in years. Is now begging for another chance.

Pipo don't know that our problem is not because we don't have individuals better than Bill Clinton, but how can they get there when the country is riddled with illiteracy, tribalism, nepotism what have u.

To be fair, Buhari is not fit to be Okonjo Iweala's receptionist to put it mildly, but such people will continue to b your learders.

Wether person wey i dey comment, speak English give even polish self na only God know. Wen i hear some people talk i just conclude sey naija no fit beta sha. No bi curse but too much is wrong.

He is welcome, probably many think this government might not tow the path of Jonathan if they lost, but it won't be easy for them too and they know the consequences, only if they rigged would they have won, so unfortunate people wouldn't vote for the young and vibrant choices but na still the same papa who will have Saraki in his government would be voted for...Nigeria Sha.....

Truth be said. All what the apc is accusing the PDP today was the strategy they had as a plan b, had Jonathan failed to concede in 2015. So all the talk of a parallel Govt then also has the input of getting foreign bodies to 'intervene' at some point. El-rufai knows this already, like a reversed dejavu. Apc is leaving. If they failed to heed to the voice of rejection at the polls, then they will get a taste of their own 'plan b' had they failed in 2015.
