After a Financial Times USA report claimed that the American President had made disrespectful comments over President Buhari’s health issues, the Buhari Media Organization has reacted.
The statement, jointly signed by Niyi Akinsiju and Cassidy Maduekwe, its Chairman and Secretary respectively, noted that the US President was fond of making such derogatory remarks at World leaders.
“We are aware that President Trump’s disrespect for World Leaders is not new; his comments on Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, calling him ‘meek and mild’; his reference to Germany’s Leader, Angela Merkel’s actions as ‘insane’, or his outlandish Tweet at the UK’s Theresa May, and more recently, the alleged remarks he made after meeting President Buhari.
“But it is important that we put it on record that President Buhari remains fit and sprightly, even for the next decade”, they added.
“The US President was full of admiration for Nigeria’s President during the visit, thus such outlandish remarks as reported by the Financial Times are not just to be taken with a pinch of salt but are untrue in themselves.”
