Is Egypt not in Africa? Whats the fuss about him visiting Ghana first?
I do not think most of us Nigerians have anything against Ghana. In my experience, Nigerians appear to like people from all African countries beter than they like us. I think that Nigerians attribute symbolism to Obama’s actions. Nigerians really, really prayed and hoped for Obama to win that election, in a way I do not believe was true of Ghanaians, so Nigerians were quite shocked that Obama did not appear to reciprocate their feelings.
I think that Nigerians are way up there educationally but quite naïve about world politics. I always knew Obama would do what he did. To understand and predict what Obama would do in the context of Nigeria in future, Nigerians should ask themselves how would Ophra Winfrey act towards Nigeria were she the American president.
