Omokri To Garba Shehu: You lied! Buhari Is Not The First African Leader To Visit Trump

Former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri, has faulted presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu’s claim that President Muhammadu Buhari is the first African leader to visit US President, Donald Trump.

Shehu, who is the presidential spokesman in a statement said :

“He (Buhari) is the first African head of government to visit the Trump White House and this is a pointer to two important things. One is, no matter how Nigerians take our own country, this is hugely an important country and this recognition is being manifested in this visit.

“And for the President personally, it is equally important that of all of the heads of state we have in the country that he of all of them has come forward to meet President Donald Trump.”

However, writing via his twitter handle on Sunday, Omokri said contrary to Shehu’s claim, Trump had hosted Egyptian President Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi at the White House.

Omokri wrote: “Dear Garba Shehu, you said Buhari “is the first African head of government to visit the Trump White House and this is a pointer to important things.”

“Your statement is not factual. President Trump met Egyptian President Al-Sisi on April 2, 2017 at the White House. Pls be truthful.”

Reno Omokiri also accused the president of claiming to be the first African president to meet the United States president Donald Trump in the White House.
