Your foreign trips bleeding Nigeria’s economy – Fayose tells Buhari
Ekiti State Governor Ayodele Fayose has counselled President Mohammadu Buhari to stay at home and govern the country instead of junketing from one country to the other.
Fayose said foreign countries won’t solve Nigeria’s problems, adding that Buhari’s foreign trips are already bleeding the economy with about $1 million being allegedly spent per trip.
The governor, who said most of the trips embarked on by the President were unnecessary, added that ministers or at best the Vice President could have been made to attend most of the functions being attended abroad by Buhari.
According to a statement issued in Ado-Ekiti by his Special Assistant on Public Communications and New Media, Lere Olayinka, Governor Fayose said: “The President should rather listen more to those of us who criticise him instead of those hailing every of his wrong steps either because of what they intend to gain or for fear of persecution.”
