Nigerian president was in China and spend there about a week. When President Buhari returned to Nigeria, from that Chinese trip, he had already spent about 249 hours in air during all his travellings.
Femi Adesina, representative of Buhari to ascertain the reasons for president’s visit to China, said the travelling was aimed at providing greater support from Beijing for infrastructure development in Nigeria, such as roads, aviation, railways, power, water and shelter.
In fact, the infrastructure is always very important, but there are so many problems that require immediate intervention, that at first government needs to help its citizens. Buhari visits were an indication that the budget could not have been signed without problems and it was even possible that the president could have signed it outside the country. Lack of fuel is gradually weakening the pressure of the Abuja and Lagos, a few gas stations were dispensing the product. However, there are plenty of new problems, which are connected with Niger Delta Avengers.
The president always visits different countries in order to build reliable and profitable relationship. However, Nigerians are not glad that ‘Buhari in USA’, ‘Buhari in China’, but he rarely visits his own states of country. People are sad that president always thinks about the connections with the other leaders, but now about his people.
