SAHARANEWS – Garba Shehu has reacted to statement credited to Mr. Kingsley Moghalu insinuated President Mohammadu Buhari absence at the just concluded G-7 meeting in France.
In a post earlier on his Facebook page, Shehu decried Moghalu as ignorant.
The excerpt reads:
Kingsley Moghalu is either ignorant or playing petty politics. The non-invitation of President Buhari to witness the G7 meeting this year is not a snub.
Neither does it diminish the status of Nigeria as the biggest economy on the continent. It seems no one clarified to the one-time Presidential Candidate how the G7 secretariat works. If they invite a country with an economy the size of Niger State, not Kano’s, not even Lagos’s does it call for Dr. Moghalu’s lamentation? Today, as we see it, they call this country, tomorrow they decide to have another. It’s entirely up to them.
Buhari didn’t go to Europe. Europe came to him in Japan, where the EU had him sign an MOU for 50 Million Euro in support to the country’s devastated North East.
The joke is not on President Buhari. The joke is on Moghalu for attempting to make ignorance fashionable.
