According to Morocco’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the call was rejected because of the proximity of Nigeria’s elections.

“The request by Nigerian authorities for a phone conversation between HM King Mohammed VI and Nigerian President was refused by the Monarch who deemed it inappropriate on grounds of the upcoming elections in Nigeria,” a communique stated.

“The Nigerian authorities request for the phone conversation and the sending of a Nigerian envoy to the Kingdom is more akin to an attempt to gain Muslim votes than a normal diplomatic act,”added the statement.

What do you think? Are the reasons valid?
