Nigeria’s former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has expressed happiness following the acquittal of American President Donald Trump by the country’s Senate.
US Senators, on Wednesday, voted that he was not guilty of abuse of power. The vote was 52-48.
Lawmakers elected on the Democratic platform had wanted the President out of office and had impeached him at the House of Representatives.
Trump was accused of demanding that Ukraine dig up dirt on his political rival, Joe Biden, and withheld military aid as pressure.
He was also said to have obstructed Congress’ investigation of the affair.
However, all that is in the past now as the Republicans have won the fight to keep their party in power.
In reaction to the development, Fani Kayode, a chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, tweeted, “Guilty 48. Not Guilty 52.
“@realDonaldTrump remains President of the United States and leader of the free world. Thanks be to God for honoring His word.
“@realDonaldTrump, go forth in power, continue to put ur enemies to shame & prepare for ur 2nd term! The Lord is with you!”
