The National Chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole, said President Muhammadu Buhari’s frequency of foreign trips was yet to match the records of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Fielding questions from newsmen on Wednesday in Abuja, Mr Oshiomhole cited the late Gani Fawehinmi’s book which calculated the number of days Mr Obasanjo spent in foreign lands during his eight-year tenure.
He said: “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 playback 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 even tried to calculate the number of hours he was spending on air compared 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 travel more often than other person? That is not correct,” Mr Oshiomhole added.
