Moroccan foreign ministry issued a statement, denying the king had spoken by phone to Nigeria’s President Jonathan, as had been stated by Nigeria. Morocco denounces such “unethical practices”, the statement said. Nigeria has denied that the king was being used to

The Nigerian ministry of foreign affairs released a statement on Sunday, that GEJ did in fact speak to the Moroccan monarch extensively over the phone on matters of mutual interest and concern.

Morocco will pay direly for indirectly calling our dear president a liar. Just watch….
