Nigerians Chose Buhari In 2015, Britain replies Jonathan

The British Government has denied the allegation by former President  Goodluck Jonathan that it conspired with others to ensure his defeat in the 2015 general election.

In a statement issued by Mr. Joke Abuku, the Press, and Public Affairs Officer of the British High Commission in Nigeria, Britain said that President Muhammadu Buhari was elected with the backing of the majority of Nigerians.

Britain insists that the only role it played in the election was the engagement with Nigerians and their leaders prior to the elections to make it non-violent, free and fair.

Former President Jonathan had in a book: “Against The Run Of Play,” written by the Chairman of the Editorial Board of Thisday Newspaper, Olusegun Adeniyi, alleged that former British Prime Minister, David Cameron, connived with former United States President Barack Obama, among other world leaders, to push him out of office.
