US GOVT. REMARKS: “Now Nigeria faces a set of elections in April that will define that country’s political landscape well into the next decade. The success of these elections is vital to the continued democratic development of Nigeria, and of keen interest to the United States. The orderly transition from one civilian government to another is a key milestone in the development of democracy. We applaud the Government of Nigeria’s repeated public commitment to hold timely, free and fair elections on April 14 and 21. The integrity of the 2007 electoral process is the most immediate issue of concern to Nigerians and to the international community. Publicly and with over $15 million in direct resources over the past three years, the United States supports the Government of Nigeria’s efforts to hold credible, timely elections, leading to an historic transition from one civilian president to another on May 29.”
