Britain has denied working with the United States to remove Goodluck Jonathan during the 2015 election.

According to reports, Jonathan had earlier claimed that the former British Prime Minister, David Cameron worked with the Obama administration to plot his defeat.

The former President reportedly said this in a book written by Olusegun Adeniyi, ThisDay Editorial Board chairman, titled: Against the Run of Play

Britain also said that it only engaged stakeholders to ensure that the 2015 election was violent free.

According to Daily Post, the British High Commission in a statement signed by its Press and Public Affairs Officer, Joe Abuku said “Prior to the 2015 elections in Nigeria, the UK engaged with Nigerian political parties and their leaders to urge them to run a fair, non-violent campaign and allow Nigerian voters to decide who their future political leadership would be.

“We congratulated President Jonathan on having handed over power peacefully in 2015 having lost the Nigerian Presidential elections.

“The elections were a credit to the Nigerian people and a truly historic moment for Nigerian democracy. This process further strengthened Nigeria’s democratic tradition.

“The UK welcomes the assessment of independent observers, including the EU, that Nigeria’s elections were largely peaceful and conducted in accordance with recognised international democratic norms, and that there was no evidence of systemic manipulation of the process.”

Goodluck Jonathan has also released a statement saying that the facts in Segun Adeniyi’s book are distorted.
