SO SHOCKING AS: Biden Administration Snubbed President Buhari Visit to the United States
Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari was set to address the United Nations General Assembly on Friday being yesterday 23rd September 2021 but the verdict from the Biden administration has been clear
To them, the Nigeria government lead by President Muhammadu Buhari is no longer a democratic ideal, Nigeria is no longer practicing democracy under Buhari
President Buhari a former military dictator who has revived old autocratic tendencies by banning American companies in Africa’s most populous nation and attempting to silence his people while promoting ethnic divisions and disregarding court orders.
His visit to the United States seems not to be going too well, at least not as planned, as some Nigerians in the United States have started protesting against the Nigeria President live on American soil, with several hag tags
This week here in the United States has been so busy with three Africa nations presidents live In U.S, two others have been successful and their reasons for visiting has been progressing as plan, but that of Nigeria is yet to proceed and may possibly not go well with the U.S Government
First from background calls to open press conferences to officials, our reporter AfriNOTES has gathered that top U.S Government Official don’t recognize Nigeria as a democratic nation under President Buhari so they kinda, feel better ignoring his presence in the United States
One may want to talk about Nigeria or praise Nigeria or highlight the U.S.-Nigerian relations, especially after Buhari lead government banned Twitter, as well as how he has been handling the Boko Haram terror group menace in Nigeria as insecurity worsen, human rights abuses strive in Nigeria
In essence, the Biden administration snubbed the Nigerian leader in the United States. Anything else is a lie, as all is not going so well with President Buhari visit to the United States, as US Government has considered Nigeria as an autocratic nation, not practicing democratic
In other news, here in the United State Of America. Ghana’s President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Thursday became the second African leader to visit the White House under the Biden administration
It will interest you to know that he arrived a day after the new President, in the person of Zambia Hakainde Hichilema was hosted in the White house by Vice President Kamala D. Harris.
A senior administration official told reporters during the white houses press in a virtual conference call on Wednesday 22rd September 2021 that hosting Presidents Hichilema and Akufo-Addo was a signal that the current U.S. government supports democracy and democrats all over the world
They also use the opportunity to pass the message to the Nigerian lead government under President Buhari who has far-left democracy but now practicing autocracy to retrace their track and embrace democracy and stop the human rights abuses going on in Nigeria. Not excluding other countries in Africa that have failed to embrace democracy
In other words, the Biden administration carefully selected who was visiting the White House based on a certain number of criteria, especially the respect of democratic institutions and human rights.
The president of Ghana and Zambia president as well were all selected and have visited the White House, while President Buhari Nigeria is yet to be cleared and may not be cleared to visit the White House, the United States Government
Will President Buhari be allowed to visit the White House, only but the next few days will tell, as the possibility looks slimes. simple because the U.S Government has classified his administration as none democracy, but autocratic
The administration said are two examples to follow on the continent. And that is our lead story today from Lilian Bliss, the U.S.A Reporting from AfriNOTES, Africa multipurpose portal for Africa global tiers goes
