TENSION: US Group Confirms Buhari's Donation Of $500m To Clinton Campaign, Trump Gets Ready To Strike
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.

HURRAY! Trump Wants All Obama Envoys And Jihadists Sympathizers Appointees OUT By Inauguration
Looking forward to Trump’s purge of the Muslim Brotherhood operatives and jihad sympathizers at the Department of Justice, Department of State, Department of Homeland Security and Department of Defense. We are talking a massive purge and Obama stacked those agencies with enemies of freedom, Americanism and patriotism. I relish the coming prosecutions of dangerous Islamic groups like CAIR, ISNA et al, who were named as unindicted co-conspirators in the largest terrorist funding trial in our nation’s history.
The Department of State is particularly compromised under Hillary Clinton. It works to impose the agenda of America’s most vicious adversaries.
President-elect Donald Trump is breaking with precedent by demanding that politically appointed ambassadors leave their overseas posts by Inauguration Day, a report by the New York Times stated.
In the past, new administrations have granted extensions to ambassadors on a case-by-case basis, especially those who have school-going children, for weeks or months. Trump’s transition staff, however, has reportedly issued an all-encompassing order, according to a State Department cable sent out Dec. 23.
The president-elect has taken a stand to not allow any of President Barack Obama’s political appointees to continue beyond inauguration day, possibly with the aim dismantling many of Obama’s foreign and domestic policy measures. The move, however, could be problematic as it leaves the country without Senate-confirmed envoys for months to follow, the report said.
While the Times cited a senior Trump transition official as saying that there was no “ill will” in the order, many ambassadors are considering approaching Trump’s nominee for secretary of state Rex Tillerson to appeal the decision.
Many diplomats have now been left in the lurch as they attempt to come up with living arrangements in their respective countries and acquire visas that allow them to remain there in order for their children to complete the school year, the publication reported.
“When you have people out there whose only reason for being an ambassador is their political connection to the outgoing president of a different party, it’s pretty logical to say they should leave,” said Ronald E. Neumann, the president of the American Academy of Diplomacy, a Washington-based nonprofit association for former ambassadors and senior diplomats. “But I don’t recollect there was ever a guillotine in January where it was just, ‘Everybody out of the pool immediately.’”
As of now, Trump has named ambassadors to two countries — bankruptcy lawyer and campaign adviser David Friedman will be the U.S. ambassador to Israel, while Iowa Governor Terry Branstad will be serving in China
