President Muhammadu Buhari has appealed to the international community to respect the sovereignty of Nigeria.
Sen. Ita Enang, Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, said this in a chat with State House correspondents on Wednesday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
On interference from the international community during the general elections, Enang said that there was need to maintain diplomatic protocol.
“And when you are in a country, you are subjected to the laws of that country; there are limitations and red lines, which you must not cross.
“When you cross the red lines in diplomacy, you are capable of being declared persona non grata
“But Nigeria has not gotten to that stage and that is why it is issuing simple reminders as to what is the best international practice in diplomacy,’’ he said.
He said there were pointers that the APC would not only win presidential election, but secure the majority of seats in the House of Representatives and the senate.
On whether there would be sanctions against INEC, he said what the commission deserved is support and comfort to conduct a credible election.
The international community is a phrase used in geopolitics and international relations to refer to a broad group of people and governments of the world. It does not refer literally to all nations or states in the world. The term is typically used to imply the existence of a common point of view towards such matters as specific issues of human rights. Activists, politicians and commentators often use the term in calling for action to be taken; e.g., action against what is in their opinion political repression in a target country.
The term is commonly used to imply legitimacy and consensus for a point of view on a disputed issue; e.g., to enhance the credibility of a majority vote in the United Nations General Assembly.
