download (3)The Federal Government of Nigeria has described as ‘out of tune with reality’, the published letter from U.S. Congressman, Tom Marino, to Secretary of State John Kerry, asking the U.S. to withhold security assistance to Nigeria on the strength of some alleged violation by the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.


In a statement issued in Abuja on Sunday, the Minister of Information and Culture, Mr Lai Mohammed, said congressman Marino was poorly informed about the issues he commented on. He wondered why he did not take the pains to get firsthand information from the U.S. Embassy in Nigeria or any other credible source before engaging in what is nothing but a ‘propaganda of his own imagination’.  Marino had accused President Buhari of autocratic tendency and therefore doesn’t deserve the help of the US.
