Garba Shehu, Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari for Media and Public Relations,in a recent interview with Channels TV. said that various foreign trips undertaken by the President were not “landmarks” but were very important for economic development.
Rubbishing claims made by members of the opposition that the foreign trips are unnecessary, Garba said the economy needs these trips made by President Buhari as foreign investors are willing to talk to him because they know he is a serious man.
“In each of the trips, we try to let Nigerians know what the things the president has achieved; and so, we are making progress, the economy needs the trips because much of it actually comes on account of who the president is. They (investors) are looking at a serious man and are ready to do business with him. I think Nigerians should comfort themselves in the fact that they have a president who is respected around the globe and the name of whom can fetch a lot of good things for Nigerians.”
President Buhari left Saudi Arabia on Saturday (November 2) and traveled to England for two weeks.
