Atiku congratulates Trump as Mueller’s report says no collusion with Russia
NEWS DIGEST–Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has congratulated US President Donald Trump, after the findings of the Robert Mueller investigations revealed that there was no collusion between him and Russia to influence the election that brought him to office.
On his verified Twitter handle, Atiku said, “I congratulate President @realDonaldTrump on his vindication by the Robert Mueller report. It is my hope that the lifting of this cloud will give room for further successes by the 45th President of the United States.”
He added, “I trust Nigeria can learn from the application of rigorous due process to get to the truth of our current challenges. Congratulations once again. -AA”
The report of a US investigation headed by Special counsel Robert Mueller had found no evidence that Trump’s campaign team “conspired or coordinated” with Russia to influence the 2016 presidential election.
While Trump claims that the report exonerates him, Democrats are contesting that interpretation while calling for more details of the findings.
