“It has become apparent that President Clinton’s visit to Nigeria has the potential to be politicised in a way that is not in line with the goals of the Committee.”
A former President of the United States of America, Bill Clinton, is no longer coming to Nigeria as earlier announced by the National Peace Committee.
He was billed to deliver a goodwill message during the signing ceremony of the National Peace Accord in Abuja slated for February 12 and 13.
A statement that his spokesperson, Angel Ureña, sent to the Chairman/Editor-in-Chief of THISDAY Newspapers, Nduka Obaigbena, said the visit could be politicised.
“It has become apparent that President Clinton’s visit to Nigeria has the potential to be politicized in a way that is not in line with the goals of the Committee. Therefore, he will not be travelling to Abuja,” the statement partly read.
The statement added that Clinton would talk to President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party and former Head of State, General Abdulsami Abubakar (retd.) this week.
