Second Republic politician and a known critic of Nigerian president Muhammadu Buhari, Junaid Mohammed, has spoken about the former military dictator’s visit to Germany last week.
Junaid speaking on Saturday, said:
“The reason the president travelled to Germany was not what it was advertised to be. The trip is basically a medical trip. It was undertaken for medical reasons. It was only converted to a state visit as an afterthought and that tells you the level of contempt the handlers of the president have for Nigerians.
“We blamed the handlers of Yar’Adua for the way they kept his ailment secret. Now, Nigerians have a big surprise awaiting them. They have not been told the truth about the real state of the man’s (Buhari) health. He is our president.
“Nigerians elected him into office and we must never allow individuals to play with our intelligence and do something stupid and dangerous to our country.
“I hope and pray that next time, the Nigerian people would be told the truth. It’s a medical trip; they (handlers) issued statements to camouflage the real reason behind the trip.”
