-HEAR THE CELEBS OUT ON HIS GLOBETROTTING
President Muhammadu Buhari’s globetrotting has become a very topical issue among Nigerians this time around. Some see his many foreign trips as a waste of time and limited resources while some see them as steps in a right direction.
Here are the views of some celebs encomium,ng had a chat with on the issue:
“I BELiEVE HE’S MOVING AROUND FOR THE GOOD OF THE COUNTRY, NOT FUN”-AYO BALOGUN
The man should be allowed to do his job. His globetrotting is not for the fun of it. He’s moving round for the good of the country. But one thing about Nigerians is impatience. We always expect miracles to happen over night,forgetting that it’s not easy to repair a house that has collapsed for almost two decades. Why are we in a hurry?We should all know that without the pain there can’t be any gain.
“If Buhari doesn’t travel abroad,how will he build relationship with other presidents?And how can he find solution to many problems facing Nigeria?
“To me,the man is working,but a lot of people are there sabotaging him. His case is just like that of one angel among over 50 devils. We should all know,to succeed will be very difficult. Imagine what’s happening at the National Assembly. So,we should stop criticizing Buhari. Instead,we should encourage him to fight on”
“BUHARI’S FOREIGN TRIPS WILL YIELD POSITIVE RESULTS”-SAIDI BALOGUN
I disagree with those criticizing Buhari’s foreign trips. If he doesn’t travel out,how will he address all our problems that need foreign attention?Like it’s rightly said,face to face is better than hundreds of letters.To me,Buhari is not just globetrotting,everything will soon begin to yield positive results. He should be encouraged and not persecuted.
“Nigerians should also be mindful of the fact that as Buhari travels out to meet presidents of other countries so also some presidents come to visit him in Nigeria here. So,we shouldn’t be too much in a hurry to criticize him. He’s really working. And very soon,we shall begin to see the change we voted for.
“THE MAN IS WORKING NO MATTER THE CRITICISMS” -YINKA QUADRI
“Buhari is working,no matter the criticisms by some impatient Nigerians. All we need is pray for the man to succeed. Traveling as many times as he can to me,is a step in a right direction. He’s a human being,he can’t be perfect. People should stop condemning him. The corruption on ground before he took over had spoilt the whole thing. And for him to get his bearing right,it will surely take some time. I believe there is going to be light at the end of the tunnel”
“BUHARI’S FOREIGN TRIPS HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH HIS PERFORMANCE”-AYO BADMUS
“To me,the man is trying. Let’s just give him some more time before we start criticizing him. He has not even completed one year out of his first four years. So,what are we saying?
“On his foreign trips,I don’t think there is anything wrong in Buhari traveling abroad often if the need be. That doesn’t disturb his performance. He can’t stay back at home and expect everything to be alright. Nigerians just need to be patient with him in his plans to turn the country’s fortunes around”
Meanwhile,Buhari has also justified his foreign trips,insisting they are for the good of the Nigerian economy.
