American President Donald Trump has acknowledged a parade done in his honour in Nigeria.
In a Twitter post, the incumbent US President accompanied a video of the excited Nigerian supporters with “A parade for me in Nigeria, a great honor!”
The video shows a procession by men and women singing different victory songs amid intense drumming, all in support of the Republic candidate in today’s US election.
The video also shows the supporters waving American flags and placards with different inscriptions including, ‘Trump 2020’.
This is even as Trump has in the past disparaged African nations, calling them “shithole countries” and saying Africans would never leave the United States if allowed in. This year, he added Nigeria and five other countries when he expanded visa curbs.
It is coming as a surprise that some Nigerians could gather themselves together to campaign for the US President to win the 2020 election.
“I like him because he forces people to stay in their country and build it instead of running to America for green pasture,” says Osita Obeta, 30, a pro-Trump electrician in Asaba.
