President Muhammadu Buhari’s foreign trips since
assuming office are critical to the implementation of his
administration key policies of enhancing security, jump-
starting the economy, creating jobs and fighting
corruption, the Minister of Information and Culture,
Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said.
In a statement issued on
Friday in Abuja, the Minister
said all the trips have been
anything but frivolous, and
that they have started
yielding fruits in terms of
turning the tide in the fight
against the insurgents who
have been most active in
the North-east,
attracting investments in the
range of billions of dollars,
and securing global support
for the administration’s anti-
corruption fight.
”Nigerians, whether in the
ruling or the opposition parties, have a right to ask
questions about the activities of their President, but it is
absolutely important that they do so from an informed,
rather than partisan or sensational, standpoint,” he said.
The Minister explained that most of the President’s trips –
to Nigeria’s neighbouring countries of Benin, Cameroon,
Chad and Niger, as well as to Germany, the US, France
and the UN – were devoted to rallying regional and global
support for the war against terrorism
”He was in Germany at the invitation of the G7 to solicit
support from the Industrialized Nations for the war
against terrorism. No one who has witnessed the killings
and maiming in the past seven years by Boko Haram will
call such trips frivolous. After all, the security and welfare
of the citizens are the reason for the existence of any
