‘Just trash her letter, she wrote fiction’, Tinubu’s spokesman tells US President

Bayo Onanuga, Director Media and Publicity Tinubu/Shettima Campaign, has called on President Joe Biden to disregard a letter by the Nigerian novelist, Chimamanda Adichie over the process of the February 25 presidential election in Nigeria.

Adichie, in a letter titled ‘Nigeria’s Hallow Democracy’, slammed the United States government for congratulating President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

SAHEL reported that Adichie, in her open letter addressed to President Joe Biden, claimed that the process was not marred by technical faults but ‘deliberately manipulated’.

But Onanuga, in a tweet on Friday, reacted, urging President Biden to trash the letter by Adichie.

“Dear President Joe Biden, please just trash the open letter by Chimamanda on Nigeria’s election once it gets to your desk. She wrote fiction, inspired by the monumental loss of her tribesman Peter Obi,” Onanuga tweeted.
