The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in an official statement revealed the plans of the Nigerian president to visit the UK after the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has reacted to the planned trip and has said what he thinks the president would do in London for 16 days.
Omokri wrote on Twitter: “General @MBuhari announces a 16 day ‘private’ trip to the UK. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK trip. Yet, Buhari closed the border on Nigerians! I don’t know if we should pray that the border closure keeps him in or out.”
Omokri noted that the president was going to spend 16 days due to the ongoing issue between his wife, Aisha, and his nephew, Mamman Daura’s family. There have been a lot of speculations going around social media for weeks claiming there is a rift between the president’s wife and Mamman Daura’s family.
President Buhari is expected to depart the country today and would be holding bilateral talks with King Salman of Saudi Arabia and His Majesty, King Abdullahi II, in Jordan.
Meanwhile, the President’s Special Adviser on Publicity has not made any comments, neither has he debunked Omokri’s claim on the president’s trip.
