The former president who was said to have mocked the US election that took place in November 2016, made this known at an event held at the French Embassy in Pretoria, South Africa.
It was gathered that he said Africa can take charge of its own future if it needs foreign direct investment.
The two-time Nigerian Head of state, who said he was happy about the turnout of events in America, added: ‘‘The fact that America can produce a Trump in this day and age, it means Americans are as human as we are.
”I am not justifying what African leaders are doing. If our leaders are doing wrong, we should say that they are doing wrong.
Trump has come by Divine Will so that America can be humbled, and we can also learn a lesson. Nobody can do it for us, and it is all of us, and if we do it, we will get it right.”
Meanwhile, it was reported that Donald Trump’s government on Wednesday, July 12, inaugurated a web-based platform to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption.
The platform was founded by the United States Department of State’s Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement and was developed by BudgIT.
