Dear Punch Newspapers, How Did Hillary Clinton Shun Nigeria?

Dear Punch Newspapers, How Did Hillary Clinton Shun Nigeria?

United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on a 10-day seven-nation African tour and Nigeria is not included. But The Punch newspaper reported Wednesday August 1, 2012, that she is shunning Nigeria.

If Nigeria is not on her list of selected countries on this African tour that does not mean she has deliberately avoided Nigeria. Mrs. Clinton has visited Nigeria before and her last visit was quite an official trip that she even had the time to be a special guest on Moments With Mo, a popular TV Show.

If she is visiting only seven countries, does this mean she is avoiding the remaining 47 countries? Or The Punch expects her to visit all the 54 fully recognized sovereign states in 10 days?! And must she come to Nigeria whenever she is visiting Africa?
