In his post, the senator wrote “when a diplomat speaks, you may need clarification or interpretation;
The US ambassador said that "the election failed to meet the expectations of Nigerians".
It's not the same thing as it "failed to meet international standards”.
The post by the Nigerian senator is coming hours after the Vanguard Newspaper reported that the United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Mary Beth Leonard, said that the presidential polls of February 25 failed to meet the expectations of Nigerians.
Meanwhile, in the February 25th polls, Mr Bola Ahmed Tinubu of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), was elected the president of Nigeria ahead of his fellow contestants such as Atiku Abubakar of the PDP, Mr Peter Obi of the Labour Party and Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso of the NNPP.
