Former Nigerian and African Union (AU) President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo yesterday congratulated the United States president-elect Donald Trump with assurance of the African continent’s support.
In a three-paragraph letter dated November 9, 2016, Obasanjo cautioned that support would only come with equitable and fairer acceptance of the continent.
The letter reads: “I felicitate with you, your family and everybody in your camp and your campaign for winning the presidential elections to become the 45th President of the United States of America.
“Let me assure you that most of us in Africa who believe in equitability in the global affairs will work with you for a fairer world and more so, those of us in Nigeria. While congratulating you once again, please accept the assurances of my highest consideration,” the letter stated.
