The Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole has fired back at internet trolls criticizing President Buhari over his Incessant travels out of the country.
Acoording to the former NLC chairman, no President has travelled out of Nigeria as much as former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
“ Mr President is involved 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 playback some of your electronic coverages, you will find where Gani Fawehinmi (of 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 it to the number of hours he was spending on Nigerian soil. So, how can you, that was already an adult when Obasanjo was president suggest that Buhari travel more often than other persons? That is not correct,” Mr Oshiomole told the Vanguard.
Oshiomhole who also commented on Chairman of the Presidential Advisory Committee Against Corruption (PACAC), Itse Sagay’s claim of him (Oshiomhole) being the cause of Edo APC crisis said he will rather take up the matter in private.
“All I can tell you is that I have a lot of respect for Prof. Itse Sagay. I do remember very well that he was one of those who said I should contest for President. I respect him, he is a very consistent fellow. He believes in what he believed in and he pays the price for it.
“If he has said those things, I am not going to reply to him through the newspapers. I will find out what he said and I will find out, call him and know what the issues are that he is not comfortable with. He is my brother and my elder statesman,” Mr Oshiomhole said.
