He further disclosed that Muhammadu Buhari didn’t sign $2 billion to fund the budget during his latest trip to China.
He said: “The issue of loan didn’t arise during the president’s trip to China, not even an emergency loan was discussed.
“The president went there and signed agreements that were in the interest of Nigeria. We should know that this president knows what is good for the country.”
“Every nation has a room for comic relief. If someone chooses to be so idle and be entertaining others, so be it,” he added on the letter which Ayo Fayose, Ekiti state governor, wrote to the Chinese government to stop the alleged loan.
“I am sure so many people laughed when they saw the letter. The president is a serious-minded person who chooses not to be distracted.”
“The president is embarking on these trips in the interest of the country, so if what will prosper Nigeria abroad requires him to travel, he will,” Buhari’s aide continued.
“Let me share this with you. During the last Sallah celebration in September, the president traveled to Katsina in the morning, he took part in the activities and by 2pm, he was on his way to the United States to represent Nigeria at the UN General Assembly.
“Now, if not for the love for his country, will the president not have stayed back to celebrate with his family?”
