The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar has congratulated US President Donald Trump over his vindication on allegations that his campaign colluded with Russia to influence the US election in 2016.
Writing via his Twitter handle on Tuesday, Atiku said by Trump would now have a clearer coast to record more successes in the US.
The former vice president said the investigations teaches Nigeria how to apply rigorous due process in its current challenges.
He wrote: I congratulate President @realDonaldTrump on his vindication by the Robert Mueller report. It is my hope that the lifting of this cloud will give room for further successes by the 45th President of the United States.
“I trust Nigeria can learn from the application of rigorous due process to get to the truth of our current challenges. Congratulations once again.”
US special counsel, Robert Mueller had reportedly concluded in his report that he did not find sufficient evidence on the allegation of colluding with Russia, or that the US president obstructed justice.
Mr. Trump had been accused of conspiring with Russian officials to influence the 2016 election.
