Behind major developments in Nigeria, especially political ones, is the hand of the United States (U.S.) that has covertly orchestrated events to suit its purpose in the oil-rich nation.
The events referred to here happened before President Goodluck Jonathan was confirmed in May as substantive President.
Though the U.S. has allegedly intervened in the affairs of Nigeria over the years, a full picture of the extent of this intervention has only just emerged through a cable published by Wikileaks on its website.
Meanwhile, President Goodluck Jonathan yesterday said the account of his meeting with the former Ambassador of the United States to Nigeria, Robin Sanders, during the political crisis over the health problems and other issues involving late President Umaru Musa Yarâ€™Adua in the WikiLeaks dump of U.S. diplomatic dispatches as â€œinaccurate.â€
The expose as published by WikiLeaks as a result of the meeting with Sanders reported the U.S. describing President Jonathan as â€œinexperienced.
