- Adams Oshiomhole has said that the number of times President Buhari was out of the country is not as much as people paint it
- Oshiomhole said that the president's trips still do not match the international travels of former president Olusegun Obasanjo
- The APC chairman used the book of late Gani Fawehinmi to support his argument and criticised the president's critics
The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, has said that the general belief that President Muhammadu Buhari goes on frequent trips is untrue.
While answering questions from journalists, Oshiomhole on Wednesday, October 30, said that the rate at which Buhari travels has still not equaled that of former president Olusegun Obasanjo, Daily Trust reports.
The APC chairman criticised the president’s critic by supporting his argument with a book written by late Gani Fawehinmi where the seasoned legal luminary totaled the number of times Obasanjo was out of the country during his tenure.
“Saying president involves in frequent trips is not correct. I remember very well, there is no president in recent Nigeria’s history, since 1999 till now, that traveled out of Nigeria as much as former President Olusegun Okikiola Aremu Obasanjo did.
“If you check through your newspapers and play back some of your electronic coverage, you will find where Gani Fawehinmi (of the blessed memory) took time to calculate the number of days President Obasanjo was out of Nigeria, visiting foreign countries,” he said.
