Alamieyeseigha's Pardon : Bill Gates Cancels Previously Planned Trip To Nigeria

Bill Gates the richest Microsoft Boss just concealed his previously scheduled 27th March official visit to Nigeria in response to the controversial political pardon granted by President Goodluck Jonathan to ex-convicts Diepreye Alamieyeseigha and Shettima Bulama, according to PREMIUM TIMES.

Authoritative diplomatic sources said that trip was cancelled, two days shortly after the U.S. Government expressed disappointment with Nigeria for pardoning convicted money launderers and warned it might cut aid meant for the country.

"I can confirm to you that Mr. Gates won't be coming as scheduled," sources reportedly claimed Monday morning. "The body language of Washington D.C. does not support his travelling to Nigeria. The thinking here is that the Nigerian government has high tolerance level for corruption and should be ostracized in all ways possible."

Sources said Bill Gates has already instructed his staff to inform the Nigerian presidency, the secretariat of the Nigeria Governors' Forum and the Federal Ministry of Health that he was no longer coming.
Only God knows what the visit of the richest man would have yielded for the Nigerian Government Agency involved. What do you think about this controversial political pardon to Alamieyeseigha and others?
