John Kerry meets Jonathan, Buhari; urges Nigerian politicians to ensure peaceful elections

PRESIDENT GOODLUCK JONATHAN (R) RECIEVING U.S. SECRETARY OF STATE, JOHN KERRY, IN LAGOS ON SUNDAY (25/1/15). 487/25/1/2015/ICE/JAU/NAN

The U.S. government has advised Nigerian politicians to work towards ensuring a peaceful and violence-free February general elections.

The U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, gave the advice at a news conference on Sunday in Lagos at the end of a closed-door meeting he held with President Goodluck Jonathan and Muhammad Buhari, the presidential candidates of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and the All Progressives Congress, APC, respectively.

“The U.S. government strongly believes in Nigeria having credible, free and fair elections next month,” Mr. Kerry said.

He said that the international community and the U.S. government were keenly interested in the conduct of next month’s election.

Mr. Kerry said that he was impressed with the outcome of his meeting with the two major presidential contenders in the forthcoming elections.

He, however, said that the U.S. government would not hesitate to deny American visa to any political office seeker involved in political violence in Nigeria.

“We want to say that any Nigerian who promotes any form of violence during the elections remains ineligible for U.S. visa,” Mr. Kerry said.

Mr. Kerry said that President Obama specifically sent him to meet with the two candidates with a view to having a violence-free election.

On security, the secretary of state also restated his government’s commitment to continue to support Nigeria in the fight against Boko Haram sect.

“The U.S. will continue to work with the Nigerian military in putting an end to the continuous killings of innocent Nigerians and attack on communities.

“The U.S strongly condemns these attacks which have escalated in the last few weeks and it is gradually spreading to neighbouring countries.”

Mr. Kerry also refuted allegation that the U.S. would in future discriminate against Nigerians and other West Africans suspected to have contacted the Ebola Virus Disease, EVD.

    WARNING

    US, OBAMA, KERRY not wanted in Nigeria …….. their last visit led to the death of Chief MKO Abiola

    GEJ Beware ….. they don’t mean well …… all these years they have only done everything to ridicule GEJ Presidency and have done everything to support Nigeria subversive enemies !!!

    • Wähala

      Deri,
      Nobody wants Dumbo dead, we want him dumped at the polls.
      The US have better worries for the W/African sub-region if your people start sh*t after losing. Go sitdon!

      • tyson

        if u were a Nigerian will vote for a man who got enlisted into the army without a certificate–while your tribesmen get kicked out for being over qualified while other are recruited with oluwole certicates such as the one buhari presented———a man who made Grade 2 without passing mathematics———-wonders shall never end—-buhari failed maths yet made grade 2

    • Omoagunmate

      Yo, nobody need to do anything to ridicule Dumbo, he does that to him self for free on a continuous basis, and madam “na only you waka come” do the rest for him.

    • tyson

      That was one of the condition obj gave them b4 his release–the murder of abiola with the aid of buharis tribes men

  • NazirJos

    Can someone evaluate for me the understanding of Kerry’s visit to Nigeria at this time, please? I’m a bit confused and couldn’t figure out the untold reasons.

    • Sword of Damocles

      i suspect that the US has two steadfast codes in the forthcoming elections and would have made this crystal clear to both parties:
      1) The elections MUST hold on FeBuhari 14th
      2) there must be No POST election violence by the LOSER of the election(and minimal pre-election violence)
      meaning if you lose you must use the Courts.

      • Sword of Damocles

        the 3rd Coda is: Free & fair Elections.

        My personal opinion on free & fair elections is that the elections of 2015 will BEST the elections of 1993 for freeness & fairness.

    • tyson

      The REASON FOR THE visit of Kerry to NIGERIA IS VERY SIMPLE–This is our son in whom, we are well pleased–we want him re-elected—we are not going to accept a jihadist like Buhari and a certificate forger————–as president of aNigeria—aware he is not even a Nigerian–

      • Factual

        Mhm….., So Jonathan is America’s son? Oh, I think that’s why Kerry met Buhari too. Does Kerry then need to meet Nigeria’s son? That’s why he told Jonathan that the election he is planning to postpone MUST be conducted as scheduled. You are dead brain!!!

    • tundemash

      to warn Dumbo any shift on the FeBuhari 14th date will be met with consequences he never imagined. You could see Dumbo immediately released a statement after Kerry left pledging no change on election date contrary to what his NSA Dasuki said a week ago !

  • Wähala

    Just look at Dumbo’s inferior body language, akin to his pose with Mdm. Clinton while taking a tongue lash from then Sen. Hilary Clinton… no eye-contact with neither Kerry nor the camera. Mugu with a Badge. Sec. Kerry can kiss any promises Dumbo made goodbye immediately he departs Eko, none will be kept because he dealt with a desperado without character… he should ask Baba Iyabo! All Nigerians need to hear as the outcome of their meeting is that elections must hold on schedule so they will exercise their democratic and civil rights to elect their new President, or retain the old. One bleak forcast is whenever it is held, knuckles will fly and there will bloody casualties if any ojoro is sensed from the losing party… Shikena!

    • tyson

      I will rather u tell us why Buhari was not issued with Visa to visit the USA————than have mumu like u talk about eye contacts—they posed for a photo session———–and u expect the president to be looking direct into the eyes of Kerrry abi–? Was civilized kerry himself looking into the eyes of Jonathan?—Already the Night soil men and juju priest in APC, have started their usual moves to assassinate the President in Bauchi and Katsina–the same way they murdered Kudirat while Buhari was with Ababcha—-The attack on Jonathan took place while Tinubu was in Katsina forging the Oluwole certificate for—————Buhari—Besides University of ——–Cambridge has declared that they are going to release Buharis certificate within 24 hours should he direct them to do so—so what is buhari waiting for?

      • progress

        This your certificate propaganda is dead on arrival. Nigerians dont care , your mumu Phd holder of a president has destroyed the need for certificates . All we want is someone who is capable and that person is GMB.

        • abdulrazak

          You see what corruption has taught you to believe? That certificate don’t matter. You are a failure and as corrupt as your sponsors. Am so sure your certificate is fake, if you even went to school. You all will be brought to judgement soon cos Nigeria is God’s country and he will surely deliver us from you and your sponsors.

          • azeez

            alaye… do you think someone with no education would be a general in nigeria…abi u dont even know about military in the first place

          • abdulrazak

            Now I see how back ward you’re, just keep being up dated you will be the one soon telling authorities to arrest your sponsor for deceiving you, I know you wouldn’t mind Becos you’re blinded by their peanuts they are offering you.

          • Azeez

            still laughing at the way you handle this sponsors issue… just because you are being sponsored doesn’t mean we are all sponsor.. well as a Nigerian, I can say what i like anytime… try to be independent and not be a liability…. mumu like u

      • You wrote: “Tinubu was in Katsina forging the Oluwole certfcate for ..Buhari..” Is Oluwole now in Katsina? Someone nas head but chooses not to use it.

      • Spoken word

        What Buhari has achieved in his lifetime, if dey born you 100 times you will not reach 1% of it.you perpetual failure.

        • abdulrazak

          Illetrate what achievement has buhari got? You will just open your less informed mouth and spite rubbish. Well I know what is causing this, the peanut that your sponsors are giving you.

      • Yusuf

        America is using an opposition base to warn your President, not in the Federal Capital. They have no more respect for him. Imagine Pius Anyim requesting presence of the American President in New York or imagine the American president warning Tafawa Balewa, Gowan, Murtala, Buhari, Abacha or ObJ about some american visa.. This man will behave better in prison with hard labor

        • Otile

          After the behavior of Buhari’s boy Son of Mutallab Americans can rightly treat Nigerian presidents a certain way. By the way, what happened to the Son of Mutallab, are they going to release him to help out in Sambisa?

    • Cowards for Life!

      Inferior body language? Like that of Oba Afonja before Emir of Bornu drove him into the bush?

  • Omoagunmate

    I am always very suspicious of people who avoids eye-contact or with very sloppy handshake. I believe they have something to hide and are usually not good leaders.

    • Tufiakwa

      The Katsina College can award you a certificate for that: Cambridge NECO in reading body language.

      • Omoagunmate

        It is common sense, you don’t need a Dumbo-type Phd to understand the importance of body language.

  • babatope

    Why is this mumu laughing? Ode

    • Rumero

      Haba! Is Jonadaft also banned from laughing? I thought Wahala has already banned him from thinking. Where does that leave our outgoing presido?

    • tyson

      @wahala keep on posting yr regional comments under Yoruba names–monkey

      • babatope

        Your president is actually the monkey abi can’t u see him. John kerry is not laughing but u mumu man was just acting like a mugu

      • Wähala

        Deri, you know me as an Igbo man. In fact, your troubles with me started the day you called my people “osus who commit crimes around the world, later call on Govt. to rescue them”…5yrs ago, on SR. Bet you’ve forgotten, ba? I am an Igbo man, remember my defense of Joe Igbokwe 4yrs ago at our arena before I banned you? Anyway, I owe you nor anyone any proof of my Igbo.hood, just provoke me as see!

    • Spoken word

      You wicked o,why you dey call GEJ Mumu.

    • G4

      I’m disgusted as well, with all the lives being lost, the territory being lost he has the gull to smile. It reinforces the fact that he’s not a serious at all. Can u imagine some of his immediate campaign aides are stuck in maiduduri and he’s going about smiling as if nothing ids wrong.

  • richkid

    Some mumus who have never done any official welcome or visit don’t know they do pose for picture. Buhari rats. Is it buhari with sherincked hands that will shake kerry? Insult to Nigeria. Both his face oo everything is sherincked with his multiple teeth he doesn’t use to brush.

    • Yusuf

      before your monkey become our President secretary of state’s are not special guests in our country

      • richkid

        If GEJ can be addressed as monkey then mouth cannot say what this your faildbuhari, who need surgery to gain some flesh

      • abdulrazak

        Illetrate like you, what do you know about the history of Nigeria? So you don’t know RICE the then secretary visited nigeria. I can’t blame you cos you’re blinded and less informed like your leader buhari.

    • Spoken word

      You are not only a poor kid. Your and your family are obviously bereft of a brain.

      • richkid

        A. Frustrated church rat, buhari e-rat, I came here to have fun, but out ur frustration your doing the job ur paid for. I pity your life hunger striken he goat. Do urself some good and vote for Gej

        • Spoken word

          • abdulrazak

            You see how you are corrupt like your sponsors, you are even politicalising simple visit and commenting rubbish may God forgive you for your ignorance. You buhari e-rats without a conscience you will relocate to Chad or Mali after february 14 when GEJ will be re-elected that is if your shame will allow you.

          • tundemash

            cl0wn …. u need to change your name to make a comment? Who are u deceiving ?
            the name @richkid has been retired for today and Reno has now released @abdulrazak to be used for a while again.

          • abdulrazak

            So my reply sounds funny to you for you to call me a clown? This is the problem with you Buhari e-rats you don’t know your right from your left cos you’re blinded by the peanuts his offering you. My name is what I bear, I don’t fake my name like you and your sponsors do just like the case of Certificate. Am sure you’re not even a Nigerian, maybe you’re from Somalia. Be ready to be deported after february 14th cos your sponsors will not help you and we can not accommodate Boko Haram member like you.

          • tundemash

            yeah right …. i am not nigerian Mr. creek monkey. whatever they give u guys to sniff at the amnesty camp is obviouly frying your tiny brain !

          • abdulrazak

            Lily livered lower life scandalous Boko Haram sewer rat like you try and up grade your self and type well, cos you sound like your Oga illetrate General without a certificate. Wonder what this society will turn out to be with people like you and your association of past criminals.

          • tundemash

            what a cl0wn … u asked someone to type well and in same sentence, u typed “illetrate”; what a silly hypocrite u are .
            You can rant from now till eternity, it won’t change the fact that election must hold FeBuhari 14th contrary to the wish of Dumbo and hos fellow rogues and we shall express our wish on that day !

          • azeez

            why do you keep mentioning sponsors.. were you sponsored, or did jona give u money for internet, well go ahead and enjoy your internet connection till feb 14 and on 15 you should go and live in otuoke….

          • abdulrazak

            What a wasted life you want to live, I hope you’re not the only child in your family cos if this is so it is a pity. Why wouldn’t I mention your sponsors, am not afraid of your sponsors. You sound like a good person who got corrupt by the peanut you were offered to sell your conscience. Don’t worry I will keep praying for you and your likes for God to help change your mind.

          • azeez

            May the Good God rule your life the way Jonathan rule Nigeria…. Please say Amen

          • abdulrazak

            We don’t fake our name like your sponsor, how can you believe others when you don’t believe yourself and is surrounded by people who go around faking their certificate.

          • checkmate

            Really, you don’t fake your name mr. “abdulrazak”?

          • abdulrazak

    • kick ’em out

    • tundemash

      Would Obama have gone to NY to meet Nigeria’s foreign affairs Minister ?
      Dumbo is a disgrace to Nigerians who have any sense of dignity. Americans are even threatening him within common visa !

      • abdulrazak

        @tundemash, if you don’t know what to comment pls try and get informed cos this shows that you’re blinded by your peanuts given to you by your sponsors. Must a visit be politicalised? Get a life cos this is not a life you got.

        • tundemash

          Numskull ……. why don’t you inform me then on what I need to get informed on.
          What is politicised in pointing out the apparent lack of self-esteem in your Otuoke Cl0wn in travelling to Lagos to meet to see the American Secretary of state ?
          Would Obama have gone to NY to meet Nigeria’s foreign affairs Minister ?

          • abdulrazak

            Where would he have travelled to? This shows how humble he is, not like your arogant Mr integrity General without a Certificate, teenage girls lover, Yerima’s partner in teenage husband and Boko haram chief sponsor.

          • Ebele

            Another childishness form a PDPig.

          • abdulrazak

            Buhari’s e-rat get a life and try to get educated, GEJ has made it easy by providing schools. If you don’t have any to go to becos I know you’re from either IMO or OSUN state where the APC governors are confused about education, come to the north where GEJ has built schools for us.

          • tundemash

            Humility and stup1dity aren’t same thing creek monkey .
            I asked you if Obama would have travellled to NY to meet nigeria’s foreign affairs minister? does that mean Obama isn’t humble Mr Creek Monkey using fake name ?

          • abdulrazak

            I know you don’t know what it is to be humble, so how will you appreciate what you don’t have. Your arogant nature can not take you any where than remaining a buhari’s e-rat. Well I have an advise for you, tell your sponsors that we from the north are well now due to Mr president’s good governance.

          • tundemash

            A creek monkey keep repeating he’s from the north just to justify the rubbish he’s writing. No one is deceived. Your paymaster FFK just, 2 days ago, faked an email address and ofcourse we al know about Reno faking Wendel Smith last year. abdulrazak and tyson are one same creek rat from the amnesty camp !

          By a man’s statement you know the kind of up bringing he was exposed to, this shows clearly that you didn’t have a proper up bringing for abusing Mr President the way you did and for calling him a bushman.

  • I wonder why Jonathan dressed in Southwest attire to meet John Kerry? What happened to his French suit with hat, his improvised fisherman dress? The US that does not care about 6 years of serial genocide could care less about post election violence. Nigerians should learn how to free and fair elections to get rid of any violence.

  • Spoken word

    I dey laugh o. PDP has been screaming that Buhari is a Boko haram sponsor. If he is John Kerry would not be meeting with him.shame on PDP. America takes Buhari seriously enough to meet with him.FeBuari on the 14th, welcome our new president.The tide of change is coming.

    America using visa denial as blackmail on Nigerians? Hmmm. Who even wants to go to America where the police target and kill people of African descent! How can you be guaranteed that you, as an African, would not be killed under the same racial profiling by the police? Anybody scrambling to go to America should go at his/her own risk.

      ..between the two of us, be truthful; don’t you want? Consider what Jona has turned Nigeria to.

  • dudu

    Even the US, supports Buhari, because he is a man of integrity.

    • abdulrazak

      You wish, tell your sponsor and your so called Mr integrity to show us his certificate that is a good start to know if he is truly a man of integrity.

        • abdulrazak

          Backward illetrate like you don’t you hear or read the news? Oh forgot they just released you from the Boko harm camp and promoted you to the level of their e-rat. Well his records speaks for him but your blinded by the peanut they are paying you. Get a life my prodigal brother.

      • dudu

        In as much as i respect your right to choose who to vote for, I really do not have the patience to bandy words with individuals like you who have no iota of shame like your principal GEJ, besides I am not the one who said stealing is not corruption neither am I the one who decide to make a minimum requirement a maximum, I am not the one who said 16 is greater than 19, this is because GEJ supporters are shameless and are bereft of moral values. It galls me that people like U are corrupting public space. In case you cannot think independently, let me assist you: The PDP is using the mainstream media to promote a lie and repeating it so much and bombarding you with the messages so that a lie appears to be true. But you see, I have bad news for your likes because ordinary Nigerians who are groaning and dying daily from insecurity, health workers strikes and other bad policies of the PDP in the last 16 years will vote out a thoroughly inept, corrupt, divisive and clannish govt on Febuhari 14, 2015. Take this message to your pay masters, “Let them not try to rig with their usual impunity because if they do, they will not survive the consequences because all over the country we are prepared to defend our votes.”

        • abdulrazak

          Hope you and your sponsors wouldn’t send your agents to disrupt the peaceful election cos God wouldn’t allow you people. I now know your direct sponsor, House boy Rotimi Amaechi. Pls a word for him, he thinks by supporting the evil party APC will give him his own pond of flesh, tell him he has missed it totally. For you their e-rat, Tinubu and his evil members and colleagues are just using you and your sponsor Rotimi Amaechi. God bless Nigeria and deliver her from evil people like you and your sponsors.

          • dudu

            Now clap for yourself and stay away from that keyboard because you cannot even defend issues concerning the man you claim to be supporting. Therefore, I have one advice for you, drop the tattered umbrella and lets enthrone a capable team in Buhari/Osinbajo on 14 FeBuhari 2015! Cheers.

    • Etomi

      Man of integrity and his friend OBJ would indict him for corruption in PTF…
      Man of integrity, and he can’t even but only forward a forged statement of results to Nigerians!!!!
      Rather than apply to Cambridge for certificate if he pulls a fast one on us—pronto, a forged of result emerges like gangster….

  • Mr. Abdin

    Change is what we need and Nigeria must move forward through credible polls. Kerry thanks for coming.

  • samson john

    Nigeria must move forward in 2015 we need a gud leader,a leader dat will lead wit love for d people not a dictator dat will treat us like slaves.let not try and move backward dnt be deceive wit lies vote for GEJ

  • Jay

    I don’t know how well they heard Mr. Kerry because the whole polity is boiling.

  • Hadiza Okafor

    Everybody wants peace. It is a good thing to meet the man, but Kerry should have asked him why his supporters attacked a GEJ convoy two days before his arrival.

    • johnny

      what do we do about the threat of niger delta, who do you think is planning the political violence…

      • Hadiza Okafor

        The armed groups in the Niger Delta are but deranged patriots who felt they were being exploited. They have displayed a violent behaviour before, but the problem has been largely solved on June 26, 2009, when amnesty was offered and most warlords retrieved their weapons. Moreover they were hardly if at all engaged
        in any post 2011 elections violence, unlike in the North where hundreds were killed, thousands displaced, churches were burnt, and so on. It seems that you are the one being confused here.

  • G4

    God save us from this clown. What is he smiling about??

    • Mosaku 147

      Smiling because he was drunk as usual.He doesn’t know what photo ops means in diplomacy.

  • Akpruka

    Our outgoing president is always excited to be with a white person. That’s why he obeyed a white Pakistani that advised him to see the parents of the Chirk girls. As for black Nigerians he doesn’t give a damn. Check out his nice smile! I guess he didn’t see white people at Uni port. Nice man indeed.

  • Akinfenwa Mikel

    Of course we are all hopefuly for peaceful elections, and thank you to Mr Kerry for saying it as well. But only one of the candidates GEJ is practicing what he preaches. Buhari is inflaming his support with promises of violent retribution should he lose, and the APC is saying the Boko Haram attacks were ordained by God, and blaming the attacks on GEJ’s bus to the PDP…None of this makes sense and it only grows the violence. I hope the US does keep a close eye on these elections, I fear Buhari is making it so they will need it.

    • uag

      Asari dokubo have threatening Nigerians with war and GEJ has never cautioned him for once so who is trying to cause crises?

  • FadeelahO

    I hope Mr Kerry and foreign observers will note how much work GEJ has put into the upcoming elections. Despite the Boko Haram threat, GEJ’s pledge to make them the fairest elections to date is a step in the right direction both for our country and democracy. Let us remember that on the 29th of May 2010, day of the Democracy, Goodluck Jonathan promised to all Nigerians improvements in the conduct of peaceful and fair elections. Since then, the 2011 elections were said to be the fairest our country ever had, despite Buhari’s call for violence. Now with the implementation of the biometric card, we can only respect how much of a man of his words our President is.

  • Ayodele Ohakim

    The denial of American visas to political figures responsible for violence during the elections is a clear message sent to Buhari. Everyone knows that this man wouldn’t hesitate to sacrifice fellow Nigerians in his pursuit of power, just like he did in 2011. What’s really concerning is that sporadic acts of violence against the President have started to appear at every meeting organized by the GEJ.

    • uag

      It is GEJ who is trying to fuel crises bcos his kinsmen asary dokubo has been threatening Nigerians with war if Jonathan lose and he did not caution them.

      • Thomas Aderolake

        where is asari here now. you can read with your eyes open. can’t you?
