2019 elections: Dele Momodu reveals why Bill Clinton cancelled trip to meet Atiku, Buhari

Publisher of Ovation International Magazine, Dele Momodu, has hinted on why former US President, Bill Clinton, cancelled his trip to Nigeria ahead of Saturday’s general elections.

Writing on his verified Twitter account, Momodu claimed that Clinton must have been informed of the “gladiators” who are “hell bent on fighting to finish”.

Quoting the story, he wrote: “That’s serious; he must have been told it is no longer safe to visit Nigeria as these gladiators are hell bent on fighting to finish…”

Clinton was scheduled to visit Abuja this week, alongside Baroness Patricia Scotland, the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth.

In a statement signed by his spokesman, Angel Urena, he said that his visit could be “politicized”.

“Over the course of the last several days, and after various conversations with the different stakeholders, it’s 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 read.

Clinton had been set to deliver a keynote speech at a ceremony, for the signing of a peace accord by presidential candidates.

He will, however, speak with President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC), who is standing for re-election, and his main challenger, Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), the statement added.
