Elder statesman and founder, National Advance Party (NAP), Dr. Tunji Braithwaite, has expressed disdain over what he tagged as the interference of the international community in the decision to change the dates of election in Nigeria.
In a reaction to a statement by the US Secretary of State, John Kerry who expressed disappointment over the postponement, Braithwaite who spoke on phone from the United Arab Emirate, said the decision to shift the poll “is purely our affairs and in our national interest to get our priorities right."
He added that: "It is unacceptable for any foreign nation to dictate or meddle into our internal affairs."
According to him, the postponement would allow Nigeria address foundational issues that are affecting the country.
“The U.S and other world powers know this fact and it is imperative of them to allow us resolve our issues in a manner that would not jeopardise the unity of the nation," Braithwaite said.
