Former Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye has lashed out at President Muhammadu Buhari for travelling to the UK to attend a global education summit.
According to the former Kogi lawmaker, the President has nothing to offer at the summit as he would just be an observer.
Melaye argued that Buhari should have sent his deputy, Professor Yemi Osinbajo to such an event and just face his medical trip squarely rather than hide under the guise of an education summit to see his doctors in London.
Naija News recalls President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday 26th July departed Abuja, Nigeria for London, United Kingdom to participate in the Global Education Summit on Financing Global Partnership for Education (GPE) 2021-2025.
President Buhari will also use the opportunity to see his doctors for an earlier scheduled medical check-up as disclosed by his media aide, Femi Adesina.
The President has since arrived safely in the UK.
However, Dino in his reaction to the trip, carpeted the president, stating that he has nothing to offer academically.
He said in a video posted on his Twitter handle that, “It is very funny that President Muhammadu Buhari has gone to London to attend the Global Education Summit.
“It is funny and it is outing Nigeria in a very bad shape because I’m wondering what will president Buhari be discussing in a global education summit.
“This is the man that has just secondary school certificate, a school cert failure, and unfortunately, that certificate is even missing. We have not seen it, no copy of it.
“And you are going to a global education summit where you have professors emeritus. Where you have intellectual mobile characters. And Buhari is going to sit down and discuss what?
“I was even thinking that he would send someone like the Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo to go and interact. Except the president is going to be deaf and dumb in the summit.
“Except he is going there to be an observer, I’m imagining what President Buhari is going there to discuss.
“It is a shame that Nigeria is not represented in this global summit because we have a president who has nothing to offer, who is intellectually stagnant, who has no capacity academically.
“Present Buhari should have told us that he is going for medical not Global education summit”.
