The U.S government on Thursday urged the Federal Government to ensure that the 2015 general elections were credible. The U.S Ambassador to Nigeria, Mr James Entwistle, made the call in Abeokuta during an official visit to the state. Entwistle, who was accompanied by the U.S Consul General, Mr Jeffery Hawkins, said that his country had interest in Nigeria’s 2015 general elections. He expressed the hope that the elections would be transparent, credible and non-violent. The U.S Ambassador also lauded the ongoing infrastructural development in Ogun, describing it as “rapid and impressive.’’ Entwistle was conducted round Abeokuta where he expressed satisfaction at the quality of infrastructure being put in place by the state government. “What I see is impressive and rapid development in Abeokuta. The roads, the bridges, the flyovers are very impressive,” Entwistle said. He lauded the vision and commitment of the governor, adding that Procter and Gamble, one of the leading firms in the U.S, would open a factory in the state in March. In his remarks, Gov. Ibikunle Amosun gave an assurance that his administration would continue to provide an enabling environment for businesses to thrive in the state. He commended what he described as the ”positive and encouraging interest of the international community” in Nigeria’s 2015 general elections. [NAN]
