JUST IN: Finally, Federal Government Summons US Ambassador Over Trumps Shiithole Comment

The Federal Government of Nigeria has summoned the United States Ambassador to Nigeria, Stuart Symington, over Donald Trump's shiithole tantrums against African countries. The summons will probably avail the ambassador the opportunity to explain what Trump meant by "shiithole" and whether Nigeria fits into that designation. 
Donald Trump have been widely condemned over the recent verbal outburst. The African Union, AU have sought apology from Trump while the UN termed the comments as "shocking and shameful".
UN says:
Rupert Coleville, spokesperson for the UN high commissioner for human rights says:
“You cannot dismiss entire countries and continents as ‘shitholes’, whose entire populations who are not white, are therefore not welcome.” 

With the latest summon from Nigeria, this brings to five, African Countries that have sought explanations from the US of the outboast. Other countries include Botswan, South Africa, Uganda and Ghana.

Nigeria's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama is expected to meet with Ambassador Stuart Symington on Monday.
