Presidency Finally Reacts To Trump's Alleged ‘Lifeless’ Comment
If you are waiting for President Muhammadu Buhari to reply US President Donald Trump over referring to his meeting with the former as 'lifeless', you are in for a shock.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, has reiterated the Presidency’s position that it would not respond to a statement credited to United States President Donald Trump that President Buhari was “lifeless.”
Shehu, said this in an interview shortly after Buhari and members of his entourage arrived in Beijing, China for the 7th Summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation scheduled to hold between September 3 and 4.
He said world leaders’ good disposition towards Buhari was an indication that there was something about the President and about the country he leads that the world liked.
The presidential spokesman said, “You know that as a policy, we said that we are not going to answer the American President.
However, the fact that the entire world and world leaders are queuing up to meet President Muhammadu Buhari, is an indication that there is something about President Buhari, there is something about the Nigeria he now leads, that the world likes.
This, it said, was contrary to what happened in the past when world leaders did not want anything to do with Nigerian leaders.
