How Buhari led APC leaders to beg Obama, US for support in 2015 – Pastor Giwa makes revelation

A senior Pastor of Awaiting The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ Gospel Church, Pastor Adewale Giwa, has said that the present government under President Muhammadu Buhari cannot stop the United States and other foreign countries from interfering in Nigerian politics.

Giwa said this in reaction to statements by the present government, warning the US to steer clear of Nigerian elections.

US ambassador, Stuart Syminton had vowed that his country would deal with politicians who indulge in hate speech ahead of the Saturday’s presidential election.

Syminton’s warning came a day after Governor El-Rufai of Kaduna State threatened that foreign persons who interfere in the elections would leave Nigeria in body bags, a statement that was also defended by the Presidency.

United States has urged the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to ensure free, fair and transparent elections.

A statement by Pastor Giwa made available to DAILY POST on Tuesday, recalled how Buhari and his team traveled to the US to beg former President, Barack Obama for support in 2015.

He said: “I was at the White House as Daily Newswatch US Bureau Chief in 2015 when Buhari’s delegation came to beg Obama.

“People hate the truth because it hurts. In 2015, It was glaring that President Obama played a very prominent role in ensuring Buhari become the president of Nigeria.

“Where were all these people criticising the United States now under Donald Trump when Obama released a video, urging former President Goodluck Jonathan to play the game according to the rules?

“Where were Buhari’s men lambasting the United States under Trump now when former President Obama called Jonathan to accept the defeat after announcing the 2015 presidential results ?

“To me, I see nothing wrong in what the United States has said by appealing to the presidency to play the game according to the rules.”
