Former US President, Bill Clinton cancels meeting with Buhari and Atiku

The supposed meeting between the Former US President, Bill Clinton and both Presidential candidates of APC and PDP Buahri and Atiku has been cancelled by the Ex president.
According to Clinton the meeting might be “politicized”.


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

The planned trip was facilitated by the Kofi Annan Foundation and the National Peace Committee (NPC).


“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,” Clinton’s spokesman, Angel Ureña, said in a statement.

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
