Obasanjo stated that those who believe in equitability in global affairs will work with Trump for a fairer world.
The letter reads: "I felicitate with you, your family and everybody in your camp and your campaign for winning the Presidential elections to become the 45th President of the United States of America.
"Let me assure you that most of us in Africa who believe in equitability in the global affairs will work with you for a fairer world and more so, those of us in Nigeria.
"While congratulating you once again, please accept the assurances of my highest consideration."
