Nigerians in the United States of America have obtained permission from the US government to protest the outcome of Nigeria’s 2023 Presidential election, which was conducted on February 25.

According to a memo from the permit given by the United States Department of the Interior, Nigerians in the diaspora under the aegis of the Nigerian American Coalition for Justice and Democracy, Inc., the purpose of the demonstration is to express their displeasure and rejection of the election.

According to the March 28 permission letter, the demonstration will take place on April 3, 2023, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Lafayette Park, opposite the White House, with an estimated 100 participants.

The convener of the demonstration, Franklin Ekechukwu, stated that “the Nigerian election was held on February 25, 2023, and the institution that conducted the election did not follow their guidelines nor the rule of law in accordance with democratic principles.”

“We in the diaspora are demonstrating to draw the attention of the US government and the Biden administration to the fact that the projected winner should not be recognized.”

Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, who ran on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) platform, and former Anambra governor Peter Obi, who ran on the Labour Party (LP) platform, have filed separate petitions challenging the election process and outcome.
