Sokoto - James Entwistle, the United States Ambassador to Nigeria, said there was no official of his country that said Nigeria would break up in 2015.
Entwistle made this known in Sokoto on Tuesday during a media roundtable.
According to him, no official of the U.S. has ever said that Nigeria will break up in 2015.
The envoy said that the U.S. had no intention to cut its health programmes or other funding to Nigeria due to the recent signing of the anti same sex marriage law.
He said that the U.S. government would not sanction Nigeria in this direction, adding: "I was hitherto misquoted".
Entwistle said that all Nigerians must be free to move without any restrictions or fear of violence.
On 2015 general elections, Entwistle said that the U.S. wanted transparent, credible, and non violent elections which the Nigerian people deserve.
