    “With your long epistle, Nigeria should diversify its source of revenue. We have the resources and manpower! It is common sense. UAE is moving away from oil by investing in education, technology, human capital,and medical and hospitality tourism. We need to follow UAE’s model”…..#Copied#
    Mr President, hopefully you learn one or two on how to diversify our economy just as UAE did.

    Oil prices are in dire straits and we’re going to the World Future Energy Summit. Key word FUTURE ENERGY, you one of the many factors keeping prices down. **Facepalm**???

    Unless of course we’going to sabotage in which case???. Before you try to use the UAE also being an oil country as a justification note A. They have a much healthier economy and B. a vastly more diversified one and C. Due to their location they’ll be one of the big winners of renewable energy.

    Side-Note wetin consign our NSA for this trip??? I understood the Iran one because they sell arms but the UAE????????????????

      Buhari, what are your plans for your own country? Your country is upside down, deteriorating by day but you keep doing world tour. I thought, you said Nigeria is broke and no money was left from the previous administration(not that Jonathan’s administration was any better in moving Nigeria forward). Are you paying for these tours from your own pocket or what? Maybe not, since you are a poor president(rolling eyes). Recently Storming out of an important meeting about a crucial issue is not a characteristics of a true leader. You are a coward. So, do you expect Nigerians to praise you waving from your airplane heading off to another country that nobody knows the purpose of it or how it will help your country to better things. Are you trying to show off to the world, that you are a present president. You are not fooling anybody bcos the west knows the truth. Buhari, is an incompetent leader, leadership is beyond threatening to arrest your opponents/rivals. I mean, I guess it’s good to give an illusion that something is been done about corruption. Buhari, sit down in your own country, so many things needs to be addressed and handled. Address your citizens about what you plan to do about security, economy, energy, building infrastructure, Etc
      Where are the like of wole Soyinka who was a strong critic of the past administration. What are Nigerians looking at to continue to allow these incompetent leaders to cheat them of their rights? Sigh

    Dear BN Team, please gentle correction … no itk matter here o …. do note that the word Arrive is best used with a preposition such as in, on or at. Your headline should reflect the relevant preposition in future. Thanks

    Here they go again! No one takes note but snore all through the meeting!

    Diversification lesson they went for with who? Agric minister? Education? Finance? CBN? Solid minerals? Or Ibe Kachikwu?

    All that is in Buhari mind is how to nail his long time enemies i.e Dasuki!

    One day another man will probe Buhari campaign fund! None of both is right but none is holier!

    Buhari bank customers are not taking loans cos they are clueless of what to invest be it agriculture! No policy direction, no budget, no clarity of intention after several world summit and bilateral meetings has to stop as we spend more travelling than we gain or just delegate!!!!!

    I will only respond to sensible aguement!

    Oil price fell from 120 to N50 under GEJ yet the naira never went above N200 during GEJ ‘s regime, in barely seven months, the Nepa Bill certificate holder have shut down our currency to exchange for N305 to a dollar!! A government with no economic direction and an incompetent finance minister!!

    Angry kikikiki

  • Naijababeii January 18, 2016 at 8:39 am

    hope say he see as their airport dey, make him do something cos what we have in nigeria as airport is called MOTOR PARK PORT NOT AIRPORT.

  • Sotee January 18, 2016 at 10:10 am

    By 2019 he’ll definitely be the most “travelled” President in the world. Congrats in advance!!

  • Lagosgirl January 18, 2016 at 10:37 am

    A government that was stale for 7 months before appointing ministers. A government that branded the nation insecure and poor for economic investment despite understanding the pitfalls of the last administration. How can you convince people/investors otherwise now? All was with political interest at the detriment of the poor masses ( creation of a poor economic state)

  • Ba January 18, 2016 at 12:13 pm

    PMB should be doing all traveling within the country if he desire 2travel. Visit IDP camps and see how Nigerians are dying with poor welfare. Is like, they don’t allow journalist to bring news from the status there.
    All these your cheap traveling hasn’t brought any development yet.
    No clue to where the Chiboks girls are and that’s seems like given up like a coward.
    I don’t know the benefits of this summit and I have search and I think, a rep is better than he just visiting countries cheaply with no sign of immediate returns.

    IF I DIE TODAY AND LEAVE THIS PLANET! 1 thing I will always remember is how incredibly full of sh**, NIGERIANS were. Nigeria is by far the greatest country in AFRICA because it is the NIGGADOMwhere AFRICANS originate from. But today Ethiopia who’s wealth isn’t half that of nigeria. Country has modern working trams. YOU KNOW WHAT IR PROBLEM IS NIGERIA……You are a disturbed bunch! Distraught! There is something you must do as a nation that ur DESPARATELY focusing on not doing……or u just don’t want to do it. But perhaps scared to do it……your inner selves are disturbed. You have such a WAR living and HARBORING inside of you. That it’s affecting the very way you see life. THE RESOURCES THOSE ARABS USE TO BUILD THAT PALACE U HAVE THEM UNDER UR FEET. But ur so busy fighting amongst one ONOTHER, yoroba vs. Igbo. And the most meaningless fights are the ones you take the most serious. It’s like ur picking on each other because ur afraid to face the big Elephant sized problem sitting above ur head. AFRICA IS POOR BECAUSE OF A SYSTEMIC ARAB PLOT. Nigeria is dysfunctional because the Turks and the Saudi Arabiams have see to it, with their disjointed Hausa Berber Affilliations. SOONER OR LATER BEFORE AFRICA ENTERS THE FIRST WORLD OF DEVELOPMENT. WE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO BRAVELY COME UP WITH A SOLUTION FOR THE 1000 TONE MAMMOTH SITTING ON OUR HEADS. AND THAT IS THE MIDDLE EAST. THEY WERE THE MIDDLE MANAGEMENT ASSIGNED TO KEEP AFRICANS DOWN. THE REASON WHY AFRICA PRESENCE IN THE WORLD IS VIETUALLY UNHEARD OFF FOR THE THE LAST HALF A CENTURY. And I fear that soul tuition will involve a collaboration with white people. And inevitable Armageddon like WAR. To kick the parasites off our heads.. But with modern guns we can get the better of them. Because they too received assistance from the white people. Initially as they over power Us.
