Trump allegedly referred to President Buhari as “so lifeless”

A news report published by London’s Financial Times has alleged that US President, Donald Trump described President Muhammadu Buhari as “so lifeless” after the two leaders met in April 2018.

In an article titled, “Africa looks for something new out of Donald Trump” that discusses Trump’s impending meeting with Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta on Monday, the Financial Times wrote, “The first meeting, with Nigeria’s ailing 75-year-old Muhammadu Buhari in April, ended with the US president telling aides he never wanted to meet someone so lifeless again, according to three people familiar with the matter.”

Recall that Trump and Buhari held a joint press conference in the White House in April 2018 where the former described Nigeria as “a valuable partner and an amazing country”.

Although Trump’s alleged choice of words for President Buhari are unexpected of a world leader, Nigerians are not particularly mad at the loose-mouthed US President. President Muhammadu Buhari is not too far from lifeless, to be honest…
