Donald Trump Team Denies Inviting Goodluck Jonathan to Inauguration
Contrary to claims by some of his supporters, former Nigerian President Jonathan wasn’t invited to US President elect Donald Trump’s inauguration
A twitter account of Deji Adeyanju, a PDP spokesperson also said that United States of America president-elect Donald Trump has invited ex-president of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan to his inauguration on Friday, January 20, 2017.
But the Trump transition committee, Great Again, has denied such claims, insisting that “the ‘Heads of Mission’ are the only foreign officially invited.”
The official of the Transition committee said that the inauguration was mostly a domestic event for America.
“The US State Department has advised that as in the past, foreign delegations will not be invited to Washington for the President-elect Trump’s 2017 inauguration and that heads of state and governments will be represented by chiefs of diplomatic missions in Washington,” the official said.
