Tinubu’s Aide, Onanuga Reacts To Chimamanda Adichie’s Letter To Biden

Bayo Onanuga, the Director, Media and Publicity, Tinubu/Shettima Campaign, has reacted to a letter written by Chimamanda Adicihe to US President, Joe Biden.

Adicihe berated the United States and British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak for congratulating President-elect Bola Tinubu.

In the letter titled ‘Nigeria’s Hollowed Democracy’ and published in The Atlantic, the author questioned  why Americans keep congratulating the winner of Nigeria’s disastrous election in February. Adichie pointed out that following the passage of the 2022 Electoral Act in Nigeria, which gave legal backing to the vote-counting process, Nigerians trooped out to vote on the morning of February 25.

She wrote: “Many Nigerians went out to vote holding in their hearts a new sense of trust. Cautious trust, but still trust.”

She says what followed was a breach of that trust, when on February 26 social media became flooded with evidence of voting irregularities: “numbers crossed out and rewritten; some originally written in black ink had been rewritten in blue, some blunderingly whited-out with Tipp-Ex.”

Reacting to the letter, Onanuga asked Biden not to take seriously the open letter written by Adicihe.

In a tweet posted on Friday morning, Onanuga described Adicihe’s letter as a fiction written over the loss of her tribesman, Peter Obi.

 “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.
