Festus Keyamo spokesperson to Buhari’s Campaign Organisation has reacted to former United States President, Bill Clinton’s cancelled visit to Nigeria.
Keyamo said the cancellation was a welcome development as Nigeria does not need any foreign interference in her internal affairs.
He added that the “American system is imperfect and cannot be any torchlight to anyone in the world.”
It was gathered that the former American president was scheduled to visit Abuja this week alongside the Secretary-General of the Commonwealth, Baroness Patricia Scotland.
The planned trip was facilitated by the Kofi Annan Foundation and the National Peace Committee, NPC.
He said: “We cannot give reasons more than what he said. We have always said that we do not want them to come and interfere in our process and make prejudicial comments. At times they over step their bounds. We welcome them, we appreciate them but once they begin to suggest what we should and how we should do, that is when we say no.
“They should just observe and write their reports because the world has seen the challenge with the American system now. The world has seen how imperfect the American system is, so they cannot be any torchlight to anyone in the world.”
