A US non governmental group, the American Black Group for Democracy has confirmed the report that the Nigerian President, Muhammadu Buhari's government plunged $500 Million (About N150 Billion) into the failed Hillary Clinton electioneering campaign fund.
They reevealed that the donation may create a huge misunderstanding between Nigeria and the incoming Trump’s US government.
The Nigeria integrity challenged President, wasted no time in releasing the funds he reportedly pledged to the US secretary of states, Sen. John Kerry and US Ambassador in Abuja in support of Mrs Clinton election.
President Buhari an Islamist fundamentalist, has a visible hatred for Mr Donald Trump, especially when the US President-elect allegedly made some statement which the Nigerian president sources claimed is demeaning and a threat to the Islamic faith.
The Obama government, which Hillary Clinton served as Secretary of States frustrated the Nigerian former government’s war against the Islamist terror group, Boko Haram and blocked every means of sourcing arms against the terrorists.
The US group saw Buhari's donation as an appreciation or a pay back to the Obama’s government that frustrated Nigerian government under Goodluck Jonathan in all front and used threats and intimidation to kick Jonathan out of office.
They added that Mr Kerry’s frequent visit to Northern Nigeria may not be unconnected to the process of releasing the funds, as Buhari later quickly mobilized some Northern elders and his party governors of Northern inner circle who helped to facilitate a quick and secret ferrying of the money with secured presidential fiat.
The defeat of Hillary Clinton was received as a great shock by the Nigerian government that was helped to power by the policies of Mrs Clinton as secretary of state and the donation is now a failed project that may be investigated by the Trump government.
Left alone, President Buhari would not have congratulated Donald Trump because of the animosity he bears for the American. It took the intervention and criticism of Nigerians to force President Buhari to congratulate the US President-elect, Donald Trump, as the Nigerian seat of power was thrown into turmoil when it became certain that Trump has defeated Buhari’s favoured candidate, Hillary Clinton.
All the world leaders including those from Africa made a straight phone call to felicitate Trump, but Buhari battling the fact that the incoming US government is aware of his hefty financial support to their opponent (Mrs Clinton) developed cold feet and chose to congratulate Trump through a twitter post.
Nigerians were shocked about this revelation that Buhari was busy funding a US presidential candidate, while millions of Nigerians were starving to death as a result of the recession caused by his archaic economic policies.
Months ago, it was reported that Buhari spent billions of Naira on his favoured candidate in the neighbouring West African country, Niger Republic presidential election, Mahamadou Issoufou who was going for re-election.
President Buhari’s pictures were unbelievably displayed side by side to that of the presidential candidate, Issoufou in campaign materials.
