The founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, waited for his moment. And when the moment came he delivered the ultimate blow. Wikileaks released information discrediting Hilary Clinton, releasing emails after emails of her affairs as Secretary of State and dealings of the Clinton Foundation. For me, it was part of why the American voters who had not made up their minds to vote for either Hilary and Trump made up their minds and some who earlier wanted to vote for the Democrats veered off to vote for the democrats.
You may say whatever you want but you cannot dispute the hands of Julian in influencing the US election. I don’t know how much Vladimir Putins’ Russia influenced this election, but Hilary Clinton had complained incessantly about this throughout the campaign. I have been watching CNN, Fox News, the BBC, Aljazeera and all the international media but I am not seeing them mentioning how Julian Assange finally took his revenge against Obama and Hilary.
Mr. Julian Assange lives now in the embassy of Ecuador because the US government want him extradited to Sweden on charges of sex offense just to get hold of him. He is being accused of releasing classified US documents.
The US media would not mention how Assange played a great role in influencing this election.
And for Trump, his understanding of the social media and how to use the media is just amazing, not even the media people can match Donald Trump in their game. Despite all their negative polls Mr. Trump came out victoriously and he won convincingly.
For Wikileaks, how they influenced this election will not be mentioned, especially in US media, but we know.
And for the Nigerian government, they must know and should know how powerful the social media is. And for us on social media, I want you to know we can change government, like Julian Assange.
