“What is the craziest accusation made against President Buhari? That he donated $500m to Hillary’s campaign and that Donald Trump is angry. This has gone viral, sadly Nigerians are believing it!” Shehu tweeted on Friday, November 18.

“President Buhari’s Nigeria doesn’t have this kind of money to throw around. Even if the money is there, this President is the least likely person to give it as donation, and for what?" he added.

Shehu also said that Nigeria was planning to receive money from the US and not the other way around.

Clinton lost the November elections to President-elect, Donald Trump who will be sworn in as the 45th president of the US in January.
