    {filename}-Presidency Debunks Report That Nigeria Attended United States Embassy Relocation To Jerusalem

    The Presidency has refuted media report that Nigeria attended an event during which the United States officially relocated its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem on Monday.

    A presidency source, who spoke to journalists in Abuja on Tuesday, said the Federal Government had written to a foreign medium, Al Jazeera, demanding a retraction of its story that listed Nigeria as one of the countries represented at the event.

    The Presidency officially disclosed that based on the report, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, queried the Nigerian Ambassador to Israel to explain his presence at the event.

    NAN quoted the source as saying, “Based on that report, the minister queried the ambassador to explain why he attended the event.

    “The ambassador has since replied that he was not at the event.

    “It was on the strength of the ambassador’s response that the Federal Government wrote to Al Jazeera to retract its story.”

    The U.S. on Monday officially relocated its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, in a deeply controversial move that angered Palestinians and drew widespread global condemnation.

    U.S. President Donald Trump, who in December 2017 declared Jerusalem as Israel’s capital, a move long sought by Israel, addressed the ceremony via a recorded video message.

    “Today we follow through on this recognition and open our embassy in the historic and sacred land of Jerusalem, and we’re opening it many, many years ahead of schedule,” Trump said.
