Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has congratulated Donald Trump and “everybody” in his camp over the outcome of US presidential election.
In a letter dated November 9 and addressed to Trump, Obasanjo gave the US president-elect assurance of Africa’s support for Trump’s administration to ensure a fairer world.
The three- paragraph letter, a copy of which was made available to NAN on Thursday reads:
“I felicitate with you, your family and everybody in your camp and your campaign for winning the presidential elections to become the 45th president of the United States of America.
“Let me assure you that most of us in Africa who believe in equitability in the global affairs will work with you for a fairer world and more so, those of us in Nigeria.
“While congratulating you once again, please accept the assurances of my highest consideration”.
Trump’s victory took many by surprise, as Hillary Clinton, his rival, enjoyed tremendous support.
