Another Lie?

I strongly believe that the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria , Goodluck Ebele Jonathan needs to take a very close look at the people that form his inner caucus , especially those involved in his re-election bid. I believe that amongst them are saboteurs who will stop at nothing to show his incompetence and wash the dirty linen of his government in the public!
If this is not so, how does one explain the series of ill-advised statements, events and activities embarked upon by the Federal Government in recent times?

The most recent being the lie about having a phone conversation with the Monarch of Morocco!
I really don't understand.

Morocco Denies False Allegations About Alleged Phone Conversation Between HM The King, Nigerian President

Morocco is surprised at the incredible twist given by Nigeria to an alleged phone conversation that never took place between HM King Mohammed VI and Nigerian President, the King’s Office said Tuesday.
The King’s Office categorically denies the false allegations made by Nigerian authorities about an alleged phone conversation between the Sovereign and Nigerian President, the King’s Office said in a statement.

Contrary to the allegations made by Nigerian authorities to the ambassador of HM the King in Abuja and local media, the Kingdom of Morocco confirms, in the clearest and strongest terms, that there has never been a phone conversation between HM King Mohammed VI and the President of this country”, the ministry pointed out in a statement.

HM the King has actually declined the request of the Nigerian government because it is part of the internal electioneering and this country’s fundamentally hostile positions with regard to the territorial integrity of the Kingdom,” the statement said.
The Kingdom of Morocco expresses its astonishment and denunciation to these unethical practices that are contrary to the spirit of responsibility that must prevail in relations between States”, the ministry added.

Accordingly, the Kingdom of Morocco has decided the immediate recall of the ambassador of HM the King in Abuja for consultation”, the statement concluded.

Why should the Nigerian brand be synonymous with lies, shame, fraud or lack of integrity? 

The late Prof Dora Akunyili was very particular about rebranding Nigeria before she passed on, yet the same government that supported her efforts is working hard at maintaining the Status Quo.

It's a pity that the Federal Government got tired of fabricating stories and achievements within our shores, and decided to involve other countries. Unfortunately, unlike most of their alibis, Morocco isn't game.

Dear FG, please leave other countries out of your Faux pas
It's very embarrassing for me as a compatriot of our dear country.
