I never want to meet someone so lifeless again, Trump allegedly told aides after meeting Buhari.

Nigerians have expressed diverse opinions about a report in the Financial Times alleging that America’s President Donald Trump referred to President Muhammadu Buhari as ‘lifeless,’ after their meeting last April in the White House.

According to a global business newspaper, Financial Times, in a recent publication, United States President, Donald Trump, called his Nigeria counterpart, Muhammadu Buhari, “lifeless,” after their April meeting,

Buhari and Trump met at the White House on April 30. Both leaders discussed issues bordering on fighting terrorism and economic growth.

The paper added that Trump warned his aides that he never wanted to meet someone ‘so lifeless’ again.

“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,” Financial Times claimed.

In contrary to his statement, President Donald Trump had, at a meet-the-press held by the two leaders, praised the Buhari administration. He commended the President’s effort in tackling corruption and insurgency.

The 72-year-old American president had then called Nigeria one of the most beautiful places on earth, adding that he would love to visit someday.
