APC Asks President Jonathan To Come Clean Over Nigeria-Morocco Diplomatic Row

The All Progressives Congress has asked the Jonathan-led Administration to come clean with Nigerians on the cause of the ongoing diplomatic row between Nigeria and Morocco that has forced the Kingdom to recall its Ambassador to Nigeria, while portraying Nigeria as a liar.

In a statement issued in Lagos by its National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party said President Jonathan must in particular clarify the thorny issue of whether or not he spoke with King Mohammed of Morocco.

The Party said, in effect, Morocco has called Nigeria a liar and it therefore behoves President Jonathan to personally intervene to address such an international embarrassment.

The APC added that until President Jonathan cleared the air, all Nigerians, irrespective of their political leanings, will remain liars in the eyes of the international community.
