AMAZING! World Leaders See Buhari As GIFT To Nigeria - President's Aide, Adesina
July. 31, 2020
Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, on Friday, noted that President Muhammadu Buhari is held in high esteem by the international community.
Adesina stated this in a piece titled, The Buhari International Community Knows’ published on his website.
According to him, people of weight and reckoning like President Xi Jinping of China, former American President Barack Obama, and his successor, Donald Trump, see Buhari as “a gift to the Nigerian nation”.
Adesina wrote, “For those of us who travel with the President round the world, it is a sheer delight to see how the Nigerian Leader is venerated and held in high esteem by the international community.
"Never to be forgotten are the words of the President of Portugal, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, when he met with President Buhari at the sidelines of the 74th United Nations General Assembly in New York, United States of America, in September 2019.”
“Inviting the Nigerian President to Euro-African Forum that his country was to host, de Sousa said, ‘Please come and declare the event open, even if it’s for half a day. We have been waiting for you to visit for three years. Many African leaders have come, but we want Nigeria’.”
Buhari’s aide also noted that at a meeting during an official visit by the Nigerian Leader in April 2018, President of the United States, Donald Trump had declared: "I especially want to thank President Buhari for Nigeria’s partnership and leadership in the fight against terrorism. He’s been a real leader.”
Adesina wrote “And never to be forgotten is that meeting between Presidents Obama, Buhari, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau of Canada, during the Nuclear Summit in America in May 2016.
“President Obama introduced the Nigerian President to Trudeau, saying; 'Have you met President Buhari? He’s doing a good job.'
According to Buhari's aide, every good Nigerian felt proud of their President round the world, at that endorsement.
Explaining more, Adesina wrote, “Let’s go back in time to London, May 2016. The Queen of England had just turned 90, and after a thanksgiving service, she was in conversation with the then Prime Minister David Cameron, and Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby.
“It was in the build-up to a summit on corruption that London was hosting, and unknown to Cameron, a microphone was picking their conversation. He said: 'Actually, we have got some leaders of some fantastically corrupt countries coming to Britain. Nigeria and Afghanistan- possibly two of the most corrupt countries in the world.'
“But the Archbishop interjected, talking of Buhari. “But this President is not corrupt.”
“Truly, President Buhari is that Nigerian Leader that is in demand not just in the West African sub-region, where his colleagues virtually compelled him to be Chairman of ECOWAS in July 2018 but in Africa, where he was made Champion of anti-corruption by the African Union, and in the uttermost parts of the world,” Adesina wrote.
