The national chairman of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Adams Oshiomhole has stated that ex-president Olusegun Obasanjo travelled more than President Buhari.
Oshiomhole disclosed this in reaction to complains about President Buhari’s frequent travels abroad.
Faulting claims against the president’s travels, Oshiomhole cited a book by late Gani Fawehinmi which detailed the amount of times Obasanjo travelled abroad as president of Nigeria.
“Saying 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.”
