Re: USA Africa Dialogue Series - Obama's sad legacy....cheerleaders accountable

The fellows you mentioned were corrupted by absolute powers.

Abacha, for instance, was hailed as a patriot in 1983, when as a Brigadier(now Brigadier-general),he announced the overthrow of the very corrupt and clueless Shehu Shagari government.

Again, in 1994,he was approached to help remove the Shonekan interim contraption and install MKO Abiola said to have won the June 12th,1993 presidential election, he did remove Shonekan and again was hailed.

It was when he tasted absolute powers that the monster in him showed up.

The institutions in US now, will however, check any possible Trump excesses. So comparing Trump with the fellows mentioned earlier is not appropriate.
