The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has defended the frequent foreign trips of president Muhammadu Buhari amidst criticisms of the president.
Oshiomhole who spoke in Abuja when he addressed newsmen said Buhari is yet to travel as much as former president Olusegun Obasanjo.
“Saying the 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 travelled 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 coverages, 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 even tried to calculate the number of hours he was spending on air comparing to the number of hours he was spending on Nigeria’s soil. So, how can you, that was already an adult when Obasanjo was President suggest that Buhari travels more often than other persons. That is not correct” he said.
