    This excavated Dinosaur is taking Nigerians for granted! Can’t this grandpa sit down and find a way to fix the dwindling economy? Senate should move impeachment motion against this Olodo President. Change my foot!

    • evidence

      Excavated dinosaur. Lol! Am borrowing that. ‎

    • Iskacountryman

      no he cannot…he finds it difficult to stand down after sitting for a long time…

      • george

        So over sitting dey worry this silly president hmmmmmmmm Nigerians keep

        • Iskacountryman

          at least we got the change we did not want…

  • Otile

    We hope this time the trip will be fruitful for Nigeria and Africa. We are becoming discouraged by the sheepish trips Imam has been making to Europe and America whereby he comes back with huge debts to over-burden Nigerian future generations.

    i am beginning to suspect that Buhari is overs overwhelmed by the enormity of what it takes to lead Nigeria, so in his usual coward like disposition similar to how he abandoned Idiagbon at home to face Buhari and his band of Alibaba, he is visiting every nation in the guise of promoting investments.
    i heard Liar yesterday talk like a drunk when he suggested that Biharis trips are beginning to yield results. how mumuish was that.
    i have signed over 100 MOU’s as a businessman that never took off.
    Make uni tell Buhari say he never visit Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Ukraine and Palestine.
    Another thought is that he wants to engage himself until his four years is completed as he has nothing to offer Nigeria

  • donMe$$i

    Hmm..that was what they said the previous time..and it SUDDENLY ended in a ‘vacation’.
    Smart move by the old man..he is aware the Naira floored the dollar today to close at N391 – $1.
    So I believe his game plan is to return triumphantly to cheers of “400 NAIRA TO THE DOLLAR “!!!

    Alhamdulilah!
    SAI BABA!!!!!!!!!!

    • emmanuel

      It would be N1,000.00 to $1.00 by June 30, 2016.
      A great achievement for a man that posted he would par the Naira to US Dollar. is he denying he also promised that? Even if he does, no wahala. Just allow the Naira keep sliding, while he visit all the nation of the World

      chai baba…

  • Iskacountryman

    beware of the muslim brotherhood…

  • Udor

    Buhari always fly out of Nigeria every time that Nnamdi Kanu will appear in court. If you are in Doubt please check and reconfirm the court dates. Nnamdi Kanu will appear in court today been Friday 19th and Buhari will fly to Egypt

      All these ‘Abandoned Properties’ attacking PMB on every good move should go on seething with rage and gnashing their teeth. If PMB doesn’t move around, they will say he is sick and not doing anything. Nigeria was a pariah country under GEJ. Only God knows what would have happen to Nigeria if the ‘ineffectual buffoon’ forced himself on us.

      • emmanuel

        Pariah State? go ask syria, Iraq, Ukraine what friendship with the West earned them?
        Egypt would have been in the State of Syria by now if Assisi and his people did not damn the West.
        The last Government had charted alternative course for Nigeria before they left. Now tell me what this junketing will earn you?
        You know that the West would rather Nigeria remain poor than get developed. That way, we would not think twice to counter them on any issue.
        Abacha’s Era, Nigeria was described as a Pariah State, yet he managed the economy better than this man who does not know what a Budget is?
        We are all watching until hunger go kill everybody. Biharis meal is now guaranteed for life, so he can work hard to starve the rest of NIGERIA

          During the era of Dr Goodluck Jonathan, every of his trips outside were decried. The worst is that whenever he was billed for any trip within the opposition will let out their bomb and Liar Mohammed would shout at his roof top that the president was being insensitive to the plight of Nigerians while he was busy dancing skelewi. This happened on numerous occasions. But today the story is different with Buhari junketing around the globe, attending useless meetings that our missions in those countries would have expertly taken care of. The VP has been reduced to a mere office boy, watching television in the government house while his old man and master is frolicking from one belligerent and downtrodden Arab country to another. God save Nigeria as we endure the pains of the remaining Buhari administration.

  • FreeNigeria

    Buhari has spent more time outside Nigeria since he became President. What’s he running from? Power outage or fuel scarcity?

  • abodes_124

    Here we go here we go here we go . 20 trips to 15 countries in 8 months and counting. ‘Sources’ say journey number 16 is being planned to take place before end of February, What is chasing him from his house? Could all this travelling perhaps be due to a non political issue?
