“We have been monitoring the events unfolding in the White House in the past hour, and we strongly condemn the overt attempts by President Trump to subvert the will of the people and take democracy hostage in America.
“The Nigerian government seeks to reiterate that it continues to support the American goal of a free, fair, transparent and peaceful democratic process that reflect the will of the American people.”
