- Muhammadu Buhari since his inauguration as Nigerian president has embarked on 34 international trips
- Legit.ng findings show that the president reduced the number of his trips since his vacation in London in June for medical reasons
- The president has been facing a lot of criticism for number of foreign trips he has been undertaking since he was elected president
International trips made by President Muhammadu Buhari have become a valuable part of Nigerian diplomacy and international relations since such trips were first made.
They are complicated undertakings that require months of planning along with a great deal of coordination and communication. They also involve much ceremony and fuss.
Buhari just over weekend returned from a working visit to Germany, where he met Angela Merkel, the chancellor of Germany.
The two leaders discussed the fight against the insurgents in Nigeria as well as the humanitarian situation in north-east of the country among other issues of national importance.
However, some sources claim that President Buhari was in Germany to receive treatment for an undisclosed ailment as his handlers arranged a state visit in an attempt to mask the truth.
Legit.ng reported earlier that a couple of months ago the Nigerian leader travelled to London, UK, for a minor ear treatment.
So far, President Buhari has visited 22 countries, while many of them even for several times.
