RE: GIANT OF AFRICA IS FALLING: STATING THE FACTS

Please find below the response of the Presidency to the publication in Foreign Affairs magazine that appeared in the current edition as sent to the publishers:



Dear Sir,

The latest article on Nigeria in Foreign Affairs titled ‘The Giant of Africa is Failing’ is unfair both to a magazine with such an esteemed pedigree and to its readers.

Ambassador Campbell has been predicting the collapse of Nigeria for several years. He is of course entitled to his opinions, even where events consistently prove him wrong.

But facts should not be bent to support distorted opinions.

Let me give you one example.

The authors write:

‘At an April meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, Buhari reportedly requested that the headquarters of the U.S. Africa Command be moved from Germany to Nigeria so that it would be closer to the fight against jihadi groups in the country’s north.’

President Buhari did not request that AFRICOM move to Nigeria. The transcript of the call with Secretary Blinken is available on the State Department’s own website.

It’s not just a question of the invented addition of ‘to Nigeria’ with regard to AFRICOM. It sums up a piece that attempts - subtly but revealingly - to shift facts to suit an argument.
Nigeria faces multiple challenges, not least of which is the dissemination of fake news and prejudiced opinion.

This is something we have come to expect from partisan blogs and politically motivated lobbies. It is still a surprise, and a disappointment, to see them joined by Foreign Affairs.



Yours sincerely,

Garba Shehu

Senior Special Assistant to the President

South Africa is the giant of Africa.

Nigeria or United African republic is just a big for nothing entity with dickheads as leaders.

Giant of Africa? I think we've lost that Bragging right. Unless we're talking about population...

Lol.

Nigeria was and will never be the giant of Africa.

Where do we even start ?? is it the size of her economy or the might of her military or the unstable state of her democracy grin

The only thing humongous about her is the relative size of the population.

When his boss called Nigerian youths lazy, he never thought a day would come when their ill-conceived wish to lead the best and brightest path of the country to the grave would receive the world's attention.

If there is any who can put up a defence right now, it is none of the members of the present administration.

All I have to say is that may the fall not crush those who have suffered the pain of living in the giant of Africa.

God bless our new beginnings

80℅ of Nigerians lack discipline.

Majority of them are proud while doing evil including their leaders. The chief of nepotism won an election riding on an anti corruption mantra, exposing how shallow the average Nigerian is when taking critical decisions.

Nigerians are generally confused people who cannot discern direction, so when they were promised change, they didn't ask what kind of change, positive or negative.
