Turns out *two* Nigerian presidential candidates stayed at the U.S president’s hotel last week

The Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. is fast becoming the Iowa state fair for Nigerian presidential candidates. In addition to the main opposition candidate, Atiku Abubakar, whose visit 1100 Pennsylvania previously reported, long-shot contender Nicholas Felix of the Peoples Coalition Party also stayed at the U.S. president’s hotel last weekend.

Nigeria has a population of 203 million people, 73 of whom are running for president. And at least two of those 73 were at the Trump Hotel D.C last weekend, less than a month before the election.

Also, we’re now up to five Nigerian politicians spotted at the Trump Hotel D.C. last week:

If you’re a Nigerian politician who patronized the U.S. president’s D.C. hotel last weekend and 1100 Pennsylvania hasn’t acknowledged your visit, please email me at z_everson@protonmail.com. Include a photo and we’ll gladly mention you in a future issue. Sorry, due the volume of submissions 1100 Pennsylvania anticipates, we will not be able to return your photos.

Noteworthy sighting

HM Honorary Consul of the United Kingdom for Missouri, Mark Sutherland, had a lovely lunch.
