Alamieyeseigha’s Pardon: Bill Gates cancels planned official visit to Nigeria

America’s richest man, Bill Gates, has cancelled his scheduled March 27  official visit to Nigeria, in response to the controversial pardon granted by President Goodluck Jonathan to ex-convicts Diepreye Alamieyeseigha  and Shettima Bulama.
Mr. Gates was due in Nigeria March 27 and 28 to meet President Goodluck Jonathan, state governors and officials of the Federal Ministry of Health concerning the aggressive polio eradication campaign his Bill and Melinda Foundation is undertaking in the country.This trip, has now been cancelled, two days after the U.S. government expressed disappointment with its Nigerian counterpart for pardoning convicted money launderers and warned it might cut aid meant for the country.
 I am not surprised at this, infact I hope more sanctions follow this. Has any one noticed that Goodluck Jonathan is most wicked of all the leaders Nigeria has ever had?
