I am glad that Jendayi Frazer said it!
ABUJA (Reuters) - Nigeria accused a top U.S. State Department diplomat of disrespecting the African country's leadership on Wednesday after she dismissed a high-level corruption feud as political muckraking.
Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs Jendayi Frazer was reported as saying a dispute between President Olusegun Obasanjo and Vice President Atiku Abubakar was the work of politicians trying "to smear the reputation of their opponents."

President Olusegun Obasanjo has always been a spoiler from his village to the State House. And he wants to discredit his deputy to truncate the Presidential ambition of Vice President Atiku Abubakar. But as we all know that the kettle cannot call the pot black.
