“They were kept waiting for one hour at the outer gate before being allowed in to meet the assistant to the Secretary of State’s Personal Assistant who then told them that her boss, the P.A., was too busy to meet them.


“Amongst the first questions she asked is which country they came from, whether they got into the U.S. lawfully and legally, whether their visas were valid and whether they had been tested for aids and ebola.”


The APC chieftain and Director of Social and Digital communication of Tinubu campaign organization added, “After much begging and pleading they were allowed in for a quick meet and greet and a guided tour of the building by the assistant to the Personal Assistant of the Sec. of State after which they were asked to leave.”


“The P.A. to the Secretary of State said he and his boss had no time to meet a failed and treacherous former VP who had shady ties with malevolent forces in the Middle East and who could end up being prosecuted by the FBI sometime in the future.”
