Polls: ‘US will not support any candidate’
PORT HARCOURT—The Consular General of the United States of America, John Bray, has stated that the interest of the United States in the 2019 presidential election is not to support any candidate, but to ensure that the poll is transparent and credible.
This is just as Tuface Idibia, said it is devilish for an individual to take money and vote against his or her conscience during the 2019 elections.
Bray and Tuface spoke in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, yesterday during a ‘Vote not Fight’ mega Peace Concert organised by Media Awareness and Justice Initiative, MAJI, USAID, UKaid, National Democratic Institute, NDI, and Youngstars Foundation.

Bray said: “If you use your PVC well you have the government of your choice. We are not here to support any candidate. We are here to support free, credible and violence-free elections.”
However, Tuface, who is the Ambassador of Vote not Fight Campaign stated that it was high time Nigerian youths started using their senses during elections, adding that violence during the polls may affect the unity of the nation.
He said: “It is time for us to start using our senses. When there is trouble during elections the politicians are not victims, because they will be indoors, while their children are out of the country.
