Buhari as ‘Good News’ for Europe

Those who see President Muhammadu Buhari’s overseas trips as mere jaborees may have missed the point. The President’s Senior Special Assistant on Media & Publicity GARBA SHEHU appraises the trips and concludes that they have been politically and economically rewarding for the country. Martins Schultz, the President of the European Parliament minced no words in describing why Europe is enamored of President Muahmmadu Buhari, so much as to give him the honor of addressing the continent’s legislative arm. The big endorsement President Buhari got is on account of the outstanding wars he has waged so far against corruption and terrorism, wars that have been described as templates for Africa and the rest of the world. Increasingly, he is admired for delivering good governance humbly and honestly. This given opportunity, as many have noted, was the first time a Nigerian President – and the second African – had addressed the EU parliament.
