Clinton was scheduled to visit the capital, Abuja, this week alongside Baroness Patricia Scotland, the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth.

According to Daily Post, Clinton will also meet with the presidential candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), President Buhari and Atiku Abubakar respectively.

Former President Bill Clinton speaks at The Clinton Global Initiative Winter Meeting at Sheraton New York Times Square on February 4, 2016 in New York City.

He had been set to deliver a keynote speech at a ceremony for the signing of a peace accord by presidential candidates.

"In any case, let it be known to President Buhari and the APC that the PDP and the people's candidate will definitely hold our presidential mega rally in Abuja irrespective of any further encumbrance they may attempt to foist".

But a statement by Clinton's spokesman Angel Ureña regretted the former President's visit might be politicised in a way that is not in line with the goals of the committee.

The public pelting and jeering at Muhammadu Buhari and his APC during his election campaign rally in Abeokuta, Ogun state, is a direct response by Nigerians to his 4 years misrule as depicted in the expansion of poverty, corruption, divisiveness anf bloodletting in our nation, the statement read.

"Both Guests of Honour enjoy enormous respect in Nigeria and beyond and we look forward to his counsel and advice to help Nigeria navigate through what will hopefully be a peaceful and fair electoral cycle".

Addressing the gathering shortly after the arrival of the guests, Abubakar who is also the Chairman of the NPC urged political parties to function as effective actors for peace before, during, and after the elections.
