He said this while speaking with Channels Television “Sunday Politics” programme.
The inclusion of Nigeria on the list was disclosed by the U.S. Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. They made reference to the killings of Shiite protesters and the violence in Nigeria’s middle belt as some of the reasons for its stance.
In its earlier reaction on Sunday, Nigeria government via Minister of Information, Lai Muhammad said that U.S. stance was “orchestrated narrative that has long been discredited”.
The Nigeria government equally blamed ‘political opposition’ for sparing “no resources in deriving political capital from the various security challenges in the country.”
Meanwhile, in a respond to the allegations report on Sunday, by President Buhari via his spokesperson, Mr Femi Adesina blasted the U.S. government for speaking about Nigeria.
Adesina said “In international relations, you respect the internal affairs of other countries. The U.S. itself has enough to chew solving its own problems not to talk of poke-nosing into that of another country.”
“No man, no country, nobody has appointed them the policeman of the world, let them face their own issues”,.
