Shortly after the April 30th meeting of Nigeria’s president, Muhammadu Buhari and US president Donald Trump, shocking reports have emerged that the later referred to Buhari as “lifeless”. The US president was quoted to have told his aides, ‘he never wanted to meet someone so lifeless again.’
According to Financial Times, in an article titled Africa looks for something new out of Trump, “The first meeting, with Nigeria’s ailing 75-year-old Muhammadu Buhari in April, ended with the US president telling aides he never wanted to meet someone so lifeless again, according to three people familiar with the matter.”
Trump’s alleged remarks is something to worry about – we might not like our Presidents Policies but jubilating that a man that is almost same age as him even if he was younger but to refer to the Nigerian President as “Lifeless” is rather unfortunate – Buhari represents us all.
