Nigeria Govt Warns U.S. on Speaking Out of Turn on Elections

The U.S., Britain and the European Union have warned against vote-rigging and election violence, and also expressed concern over President Muhammadu Buhari's suspension of Nigeria's top judge Walter Onnoghen. Now 42 parties are threatening to boycott the signing of the final peace accord unless the National Peace Committee includes conditions for free, fair and credible elections. The All Progressives Congress hit back, accusing the "diplomats for making comments that are capable of undermining the integrity of the election".
