      Is this not the same agu that said he’s lived in ghana for the past one year? No wonder. Why you no go open mouth and begin defend buhari when you have no clue whatsoever of what people are experiencing. If his governance is truly people-centric, move back to Nigeria na, mschew

    President Buhari will go down in history as the president with highest oversea trip and fewer number of days spent in his own country.
    He’s not disposed to visit Benue but agile and eager to visit Washington.
    We should have known better

      This man is grossly disconnected to the people of our country . He couldn’t be bothered with the plight of Nigerians.
      After 104 days of absence he resumed, visited only his home town and off to the USA??? What the heck of importance is this? Is this more important than Benue flooding? Is this not why Nnamdi call Nigeria a zoo? It is foolishness and selfishness to abandon the severely cracked country for summer holiday and few minutes meeting with Trump.
      Ajala bye.
      You are not a good somebody thasall!

      Buhari is a nuisance. Those still supporting him are blinded fools. Trump wants to aid him for war. That money he received to fight Boko haram and assist northeast could be used to develop the economy. Nigerians are suffering deeply, forget what we see on bella naija. And naijas are conditioned and trained to smile in the midst pain.

    Well said Nene+
    Trump has gone to Texas twice in only a few days. He has proposed a relief plan which he is persuading the congress to adopt; and it doesn’t look like he’ll travel out of his country as along as parts of Texas are flooded.
    And here we have destructive floods in Benue state with enormous loss of lives and property in toll. The man some people ignorantly called messiah has not gone to anywhere close to Benue but he’s about to fly over the seas to see Donald Trump. This is inferiority complex at work. It is also a demonstration of hatred and callousness about the plight of your own citizens and countrymen.
    I believe that travelling from Abuja to Benue and spending few minutes (even if it’s based on faked sympathy) should be the easiest thing for a president to do, except if the president is such that is so evil he does not recognise that lives of the citizens matter.
    I’m not surprised though. When bloodthirsty Fulani herdsmen transformed Agatu in same Benue to a killing field Buhari said nothing and has not said anything about it till this moment.
    This should lift the confidence of Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo state who is yet to acknowledge that officers of state acting on his orders killed an innocent ten year old boy in broad daylight

    can’t complain, never liked him (nothing against him as a person or whatever, but counting the days for him to move on from being president. thank you for your service…)

    So this man can travel to USA but can’t travel to Makurdi??! I mean even Trump visited Houston after the flood disaster. Buhari has to be the most insensitive president I’ve seen in a long while. Both he and his handlers as they call them, have NO SENSE.
