Buhari’s foreign trips not enough – Onyeama
Written by Adewale Adeyemi on February 3, 2023
With 51 official trips so far undertaken by President Muhammadu Buhari to many countries across the globe since his inauguration in 2015, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Geoffrey Onyeama, on Thursday, defended the numerous outings, insisting that they were not enough given the level of consultations the president needs to make with his counterparts in Nigeria’s interes
Onyeama, who was giving the scorecard of the foreign ministry under the Buhari administration from 2015 till date, stated that Buhari needed to have made more trips within the period given the high level of consultations required of his office as the number one foreign affairs leader for Nigeria.
Vanguard reports that Onyeama, while responding to a reporter’s question, pointed out however that he was not surprised by the claim by some Nigerians that Buhari has travelled too frequently, saying that those who make the claim do not understand how important his trips are to Nigeria and its citizens.
