Seven Governors embark on Goodwill visit to President Buhari in London

Buhari’s spokesman, Garba Shehu

The Presidency says Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara will be leading a seven-man delegation from the Nigerian Governors’ Forum on a goodwill visit to President Muhammadu Buhari in London.

President Buhari had on Sunday in London received a delegation of All Progressives Congress (APC) which comprised national leadership of the party and its governors.

However, Garba Shehu, the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, told State House correspondents that a fresh team comprising Governors of Zamfara, Ebonyi, Kano, Borno, Benue, Akwa Ibom and Oyo would be visiting the President in London on Tuesday.

Shehu briefed the correspondents alongside the President’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity Femi Adesina and Laolu Akande, the Senior Special Assistant to the President (Office of the Vice President).

According to him, the governors will be meeting the President on Wednesday in London.

“The delegation is being led by the Governor of Zamfara, who is the chairman of the Governors’ Forum and in that delegation there will be the governors of Ebonyi, Kano, Borno, Benue, Akwa Ibom and Oyo states. They will leave tonight and make an early morning arrival in the UK,” Shehu said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) was established by the Federal Government of Nigeria in May 1976 to gather and distribute news on Nigeria and cover events of interest to Nigeria at the international level for the benefit of the Nigerian Media and the Public.

    But what’s the point of all these visits??? Eye service! Anyway, his 90 days will elapse on August 7. Let’s see if he come back before then or not. And if the Nigerian constitution will be respected or not.

    Waste not. Want not. The President is away in London spending a huge amount of money Nigeria doesn’t have to take care of himself while many Nigerians suffering from similar ailments as the President were left to receive made in Nigeria medical treatments. Now the governors were out spending money their state governments can’t afford. When are we going to learn from all our past mistakes? Visiting the President in London is surely not going to cure him from whatever sickness he is suffering from. These so called governors could have used FaceTime or SKYPE and other methods to communicate with the President without having to travel to London. Citizens of their respective States should take this prodigal governors to Court to recover their money. Because their State did not benefit in anyway from this travel. So far all the money Mr Buhari alone has spent on himself this year is enough to lmprove the entire health care systems of at least four or more States in Nigeria.. Yet this government has the audacity to ask fellow Nigerians to buy made in Nigeria products. When the president himself has failed to lead by example. Why isn’t anybody asking the acting President or the Minister of information Mr. Lie Mohammed this question. Why is the President not buying made in Nigeria medical treatment? Secondly, If the health care system in Nigeria is good for other Nigerians, why not for the President? The next time anyone in this government dare open their filthy mouths to say buy made in Nigeria. We should all ask /tell them to shut the hell up.. After all what is good for the geese should also be good for the gander. A word is enough for the wise. I’m just saying.

      Jamboree! Paris money recently shared will be put to maximum utility on travels, hotels, shopping, drinking and prostitutes!
      Mr. INTEGRITY wasting our hard earned monies and many duties/ levies imposed on the already impoverished citizens via CBN.
      N.a. God go judge una! Buhari knew he was very ill way before the election he commenced his check up, but the gullibles kept promoting him.
      Here we all are viewing the drama at the expense of several Nigerians with herbalist/ala Agbo/dibia with worse illnesses, Many can’t afford medical fees in hospitals and are left to die on the side walks as Linda Ikeji would always share.
      It is well Nigerians.

    Next Election…. same Nigerians will be shouting APC & PDP… and Tribalism go enter am again… Instead of us to READ!!!! Check every candidate out properly…and not vote for the same set of thieves..

    All we practise in Nigeria is the definition of Insanity… Doing the same thing….( electing the same thieves and expecting different results)

    Imagine… see these idle Governors…. wasting away tax payers money. Some of them are still owing workers oo.

    The poverty never do us… We are our own wahala.

    This might sound insensitive but can they let this man just go to his ancestors since he has refused to resign? As long as he”s alive, he’s spending money we don’t have and plunging the country into uncertainty.
    He was vocal about the same thing when Yaradua was alive and now it’s his time, he has developed severe dementia.

    Can we get Adesina (former agriculture minister) to come run for president, Okonjo Iweala, Peter Obi, Segun Aganga, the current Vice President and so many other Nigerians with dignity and respect, i will support that person. We don’t want rogues, ethnic bigots and chauvunists. Why do we despise honest and hardworking people, whether rich, average, or poor? They don’s spread one thousand naira or 5k like the politicians do, because they worked hard for their money and they know the value. this is not the time to stay on the side lines, bloggers and journalists that have a loud voice need to step in the ring and make their voices heard.
    slavery thrived because we were docile; we are in bondage because we are still docile. Give us greatness or let us break up!!! e don do
