From Washington to Abuja
- The international background to the return of President Mohammadu Buhari to Abuja was the culmination of the tragic theatre of the absurd that the presidency of Donald Trump has come to represent for the United States. I crave your indulgence to wax metaphysical. Trump returned to Washington from his eventful seventeen days holiday on Monday August 21st stewing in a broiling crisis entirely of his own making. His return coincided with a unique astronomical phenomenon that had not been witnessed in America for over a century.
